Hello.
We are 4 girls planning to travel from mumbai to goa, during the christmas, 2017, for a 2-day visit.
I have some doubts, would you mind clearing them?

1) I heard that, there are trains, running from mumbai to goa, on an hourly basis. If my destination is vasco;
where should I board a train from?
what should be my destination station?
What is the price of the ticket, per person?

2) Due to the current cyclone, and super moon, happenings, I hear that the prices have surged up. Will the status be the same during christmas (2017)?

3) Can you suggest some good restaurants, for lunch and dinner purposes?

4) One from my group also want to know go on a city tour. How much do those taxis charge?

You seriously need to contact a travel agent, you're knowledge and information mentioned suggests you have so much you need to find out that indiamikers are unlikely to be of much help.

Trains are nowhere near every hour, maybe 6-8 per day, and as you're only going for 2 days you will almost certainly need to avoid the daytime trains, and most, if not all the overnight trains will already have sold all their confirmed tickets and have long waitlists.

Christmas is always maximum prices in Goa, hugely poor value for money, especially as you only want 2 nights so have nothing to bargain with.

Vasco isn't where you need to be heading to, you need to give people an idea of what kind of area you like, and what you want to do (party?).

Restaurants.....it's tourist type Vs places for locals, Goa is expensive for food if you want high quality.

Taxis in Goa at Christmas time are perhaps the biggest rip off anywhere in India, don't ask how much, the driver will tell you, and speed off if you try to get the price down.

Mumbai, and Goa have many different stations, you need to give people more information.

All cost questions require more information from you, what's your budget? (needs to be quite high for 2 days in Goa at Christmas).

Absolutely!!

Google the number and timings of trains... but unlikely to get tickets for that time of year to Goa from just about anywhere...

This should give you an idea about Mumbai to Goa trains. They all would be fully booked, but you can try Tatkal tickets.
You can see from the link provided that trains originate from different places in Mumbai and arrive at different places in Goa.
