"Manali(2nd oct morning)-keylong-kaza-nako-tobo-kalpa-sangla-sarahan-shimla(9th oct)-kalka(10 oct)"

My answer to your questions are:-
1.Two night stay each at Keylong and Kaza.
2.You need 11 to 12 days to see all these places.
3.Search for one nepali caretaker (I am not remembering his name, no signboard on the hotel either, owner's son is expert for guiding different trekking) at ding dong si on the way to Sangla to Chhitkul. Stay at Bhama Kali Temple lodges in Sarahan. Find hotels at Rekongpio at Kalpa (one night stay is enough).
4.Don't waste time in seeing Hirimba Temple, Basisth Muni Ashram and Marketing in Manali, just enjoy Rohtang-La Pass on the way and proceed towards Keylong, valley of flowers. Keep one stay at Shimla because after seeing remote beauties Shimla is meaningless.
5.You can take it from Keylong, but I don't know where is the stand? You can visit Kelong from Manali directly via bus. To avoid problem you can hire cab from Manali.

I too obliged solving your questions, ask some other question ...plzzzzzzzzz

If you are planning to travel by car from Manali to Shimla then you would have to pay for return fare also. A Sumo for a day would cost you around Rs 2500/-

It would be better to travel by buses and shared jeeps.

I assume you mean the Rothang Pass , which is open. Just read another confirmation on this , a Swede who crossed it on the 19th.

Updates here.

You can stay at Jeevan Jyoti Guest House at Sarahan and search for Padam caretaker in a hotel at ding dong sea (area name) Rockchham just few kms. from Sangla towards Chhitkul.
