There can be a little difference on their average speed, and they has difference in stopovers as well. It takes longer time if it stops more stations along the way. But generally speaking, the high speed type takes around 3 to 3.5 hours.

If you use an official taxi and ask to go by meter, it should be fine. The distance is around 15km and should be within CNY40. If you do not mind of using public transfer, you may consider metro line 2 as well. You can take line 2 to Bell Tower and then walk about 1.5km to reach the hotel.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Based on the policy, it is OK to board from a stopover along its way. The seat/bed should be reserved for you. You need to collect the paper ticket out before the departure time from Taiyuan. And most important, you need to make sure the one you choose do have a stopover in Pingyao. Not every rides from Taiyuan to Xi'an have a stop at Pingyao.
