So how do I figure out if say a part is being made with a .250 round dowell pin at 100,000 yield strength and I want to use a material at 60,000 yield strength how much bigger would I have to make the dowell pin to achieve the same yield strength?

In general, the maximal force is given by the strength multiplied by the area, so the product of both has to stay the same.
