Both ways are workable. There are around 50 high speed rides a day from Hongqiao to Ningbo. So it should not be a problem to get a ticket on the day. Or you can do it at station days in advance too if your time allows. If you want to guarantee a ticket early in advance, you can choose to book online in advance.

Yes, no problem. In fact you can buy the ticket at any railway station in mainland. It does not have to be the departure city. No extra fee.

There is a long distance bus station near Ningbo Railway Station. From there, you can take a long distance bus to Shenjiamen bus station. Then you can take a bus or taxi to Banshengdong or Zhujiajian Port and finally go to Putuo Mountain by ferry.

If you will take high speed ride, the rides would depart from Hongqiao Railway Station. You can take metro line 2 or airport shuttle bus to reach Hongqiao Station. If you want to go by normal type, you would need to go to South Station which is also reachable by airport shuttle bus.

The ticket can be changes once, but there is some time limitation. For example, within 48 hours, it cannot be changes to other later date. So it also depends on the time you make the change.
