I want to make a page (lets call it site A) that when navigating from it, the IP address of the user is changed to removed.
So if a user goes from site A to site B, site B will not be able to see the users IP address.

I dont think this is possible as it is, What you can do is use Proxy Server to open a website and hide your IP Address..

What can a proxy server do that a regular site can't do?

It wouldn't be legal to change another user's IP address without very clear permission.
In English terms of programming, it wold go something like this:
(in Site B code)
If user arrives from Site A-
Show IP or Store IP address.
do you want to store the IP address in analytics or do you want to show the user their IP.
I'm assuming you'd be the owner of site A and B?
well I don't know if the whole thing would be possible in JS.
so the script would be dependent on the source of traffic, in this case show/store IP address of user on Site B if they come from Site A.
if the user filled out a form on site A to get to site B that might make it easier.

The most common method to hide your IP address is to use aproxy server in one form or another. A proxy server is a computer that offers a computer
network service to allow clients to make indirect network connections to other network services. There are several implementations of proxy servers that you can use to hide your IP address (in an attempt to remain anonymous on the internet):
A Website based proxy server is a website that provides a form for you to enter the URL of a website that you wish to anonymously visit. When you submit the form the website proxy server makes a request for the page that you want to visit. The machine usually
proxy services are:
There are also stand alone proxy servers that allow for you to configure your browser to route your browser traffic through that machine, which then makes a request for a page on your behalf, and then sends you the results. These are usually used at no cost
to the user. Since they are accessible to the public these are often quite slow.
