if you have two places, what is there to plan for? Go to Jaisalmer first, then come back to Jodhpur. It would take 2-3 days if you want to see everything around Jaisalmer, then the remaining time can be spent in Jodhpur.

It is possible to do both cities without renting any innova, unless you are planning to go out of the city to some villages, or plan to stop off between the cities in villages.

There is a night train from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur, or there are many buses. There is public transport within each city, or autos to cover the places.

If you check the wikitravel pages of each city, they will give you all the places of interest. You can pick those that will fit into your plan.
Also, the city forums in IM will yield a lot of information.

There are some towns a bit off from the main city, if you have those on your plan, then you might need a innova. I would go to the city, and take my hotel's help to rent a car locally.

If you choose to rent a car for the whole trip, then it makes sense to get off in jodhpur, rent a car, go around, come back, and then leave, as pe your plan.Even if you use the cab one way, you have to pay both ways, so why not use it both ways.

For Jodhpur, the surrounding towns are osiyan, khichan, and some others. For Jaisalmer, it is the rat temple, and phalodi. Both are a bit away from the core city. And if you want the desert experience, try sam or in khuri, near jaisalmer. there may be some options near jodhpur as well.

Perhaps these links will help

No comments on the hotels.

We stayed at Desert Boys inside the fort in Jaisalmer. Great experience. Helps to stay inside the fort if you'd like to check out the temples after dark, sit in an aarti or visit early in the morning before crowds descend.

6 days will allow you to cover (roughly in order) -

Jaisalmer - fort + havelis + local.
Jaisalmer - Amarsagar + Lohdruva + Sam or Khuri (half day safari)
Jaisalmer - visit to BP609 (Tanot mata temple and border).
Jaisalmer to Jodhpur via Osiyan.
Jodhpur local attractions - Fort, Ummaid Bhawan palace, old city.
Jodhpur half day sightseeing (assuming you're flying out to Kolkata that day) - Mandore gardens, etc.

Khichan requires more time (either needs to be planned as a stop over between Jaisalmer and Jodhpur or a round trip from Jodhpur with an overnight stopover).

You may want to construct something rough for better advise.
