I heard that the earliest bus starts at 6:30am but may also change due to season. I am not sure if this information is still updated or not. It is safer you ask about it at Wulingyuan bus center on the day you reach Wulingyuan from downtown. It takes around 1 hour on the way.

Yes, this station opens all day long, if you hold the tickets for later rides from this station, you should be able to back to the waiting hall directly.

Yes, it is fine. As long as there is train in service, the waiting hall will be open to public. It is very normal that Chinese people like to reach the station more than 2 hours in advance. So the station waiting hall must be in service for the whole night.
