I guess Poorva and Doon express ply on that route.
Try out the above site for availability of seats in the "Train/fare acomodation" tab.
For booking try out: http://www.irctc.co.in/

Too many questions, not enough details.

At a guess, I'd say there are about 30 trains a day from Varanasi to Gaya, mostly long dintance trains though.

Try to stick to air con classes, though 3-tier air con should be enough, Sleeper class (not air con) can get dozens of extra people join the carriage.

Try to get a train that starts from Varanasi (or as close as), it's crazy to book a 3 hour train journey, then use a train that started it's journey 15 hours earlier (so can easily be delayed).

When are you travelling? (fog is big problem till feb)

What date? then people can look at availability before recommending a train.

Are you in India now? where? there are diferent quotas for different trains, and small waitlists for some, some of these can be booked in Indie, others can't.
