so im bascially using namecheap domain & servers and squarespace. i have squarespace setup already using there DNS settings for my domain in namecheap. My only problem now is linking a subdomain to be used on the namecheap hosting servers.

i currently have squarespace setting on advanced DNS.

im assuming i might have to add more entries here and on cpanel dns settings to use a subdomain on namecheap hosting. any ideas?

namecheap hosting says i have to add there nameservers but when i do that the link with squarespace breaks.

squarespace uses dns with @ and cnames and namecheap hosting use nameservers. how do i use my domain with both?

Namecheap is correct. You'll need to use their nameservers if squarespace won't allow you to add an A entry.
However, you should be able to contact squarespace, if your dns is through them and have them point sub.domain.com as an A entry to the ip you want.
