|Buses will STILL pass by Huangshan city, even if they're going to Tangkou.|
Have not heard of any bus departing from Hualong Hotel. There're 3 departures from Shanghai South long-distance bus station to Tangkou, at 0628, 1012 and 1712. Fare is 140 RMB.

|I think it's about 6.5 hours. So if you take the departure at 0628, you should arrive around 1300. You then have to change to another internal shuttle bus to get to the bottom of either Western or Eastern Steps. Don't forget that you'll have to stop for lunch at Tangkou before you ascend the mountain. Seeing that it usually takes about 7 hours to climb up the Western Steps, I think it might be easier to go for the Eastern Steps instead, which usually take around 3 hours going up.|
If you want to go to Luoyang/Xi'an by train, then the best solution is still to go back to Shanghai as the trains originate from there. The next best would be to take a bus to Nanjing then continue by train, but tickets might not be as easy to get.
When are you travelling?

|Unless you're a pretty fast hiker, otherwise I think it might be a bit late to start on that departure. Do you not have the option of starting on an earlier bus?|
From Tangkou you still need to connect to another bus to get to the foot of the Eastern Steps. From there it probably takes around 3 hours to climb to the summit area.
There're a number of hotels and sunrise viewing points, what is suitable would depend on your route.
Buses to Tangkou depart from Hangzhou West long-distance bus station. It probably takes around 3+ hours to arrive at Tangkou.
Actually though, my pet recommendation would usually be to take a bus to Tunxi, connect to a bus to Taiping (north foot of the mountain, much less crowded), taxi to Taiping cable car station, ascend via Taiping cable car then hike West Sea Canyon. After sunrise the next day, descend on foot via Western or Eastern Steps. Would this be ok for you to consider? IMHO the best scenery (and most uncrowded) on Huangshan is the West Sea Canyon.

We want to go from Huanshang to Suhzou. Is there any train or bus available? How long would it take?

|Huangshan (city) to Suzhou? Bus and overnight train both possible, I would prefer the latter.|
Tunxi -- Suzhou:
K8420/K8417 (1915--0831) 13h16min
K784/K781 (2211--0931) 11h20min

|There's a daily bus that leaves very early in the morning (around 0600) that goes directly to Taiping, but I'd prefer to transit in Tunxi. If you change buses in Tunxi you don't necessarily need to leave so early (a little bit more sleep if you don't want to wake up so early) and you could also leave excess luggage in Tunxi, to be picked up when you leave.|
What did the tour agency mean by "it won't be the same as in the high season"? We could always check before you go to Huangshan to confirm that Taiping cable car will be running when you're going there, that's not a problem.
I think you should be ok buying the Hangzhou -- Huangshan bus tickets a day in advance in Hangzhou.
Train tickets for Hangzhou -- Huangshan? No one goes by train for this route, it isn't direct (you'll have to transit in Shanghai) and it doesn't make sense.
I believe Tunxi -- Shanghai flights run year-round. Allowing about 3 hours before flight departure time from the bottom of the Western Steps to Tunxi airport, should be reasonably sufficient. Shouldn't be a problem to find a taxi to take you to the airport.
No, the West Sea Canyon and Western Steps are different. Yes, it's possible to do both of them with an overnight stay in the summit area.
