    a) There're no direct trains from Kunming to Hong Kong. You might be better off taking the train to Guangzhou and then changing to one that goes to Hong Kong from there. K363/K366 goes to Guangzhou main train station and K229/K232 goes to Guangzhou (East) train station. The latter will be preferable as the trains to Hong Kong leave from Guangzhou (East) train station, and the fare will be 330/341/353 RMB for hard sleeper and 517/539 RMB for soft sleeper. I don't think taking a bus for such a long journey is advisable.
    b) I think the fare for the international train from Hong Kong to Beijing will be about 600+ HKD for a sleeper.
    c) T61 train goes from Beijing to Kunming in a bit under 40 hours. It's 539/558/578 RMB for hard sleeper and 852/890 RMB for soft sleeper.
    d) I hope you already know that you need a double-entry visa for China for your proposed route. I've no idea if you need a visa to Hong Kong as you didn't specify your passport nationality.
