I want to know if there's a way to have the piñata/hook cling to the rope like in real life.

The rope currently has a shape key that has it drop down like this:

I have tried adding the piñata as a 'child of' the rope, which does move the piñata/hook with the rope but does nothing when the rope's shape key is set to 1.

would it be easier to animate the piñata manually so it looks like it's attached?

It depends how much you want to animate versus simulate the swing.. but at its simplest, you could (Object Mode) parent the piñata to the line, selecting 'Vertex', that's Vertex Parenting.
