We are flying into Beijing from Canada and plan to apply for the 144hr Visa. We then fly Beijing->Hong Kong. A week later, we are flying from South Korea->Beijing->Canada when the layover in Beijing is 6hr, where we do not leave the airport. Is this eligible for 144hr Visa based on the Visa rules?

CANADA -> Beijing (144hr Visa) -> HONG KONG
SOUTH KOREA -> Beijing (24hr airport-only) -> CANADA

Thank you!

Both qualify as separate transits. The stop on the way home you will only be given the 24 hour version. The full 144 hour is only granted when scheduled stop is over 24 hours

6 weeks later I am flying to Beijing from Chiang Mai for a 3 day stay, then a flight from Beijing to Tokyo with a 2 hr layover in Hong Kong. Is this too many layovers, cities and time in between to qualify for 144 visa free stay for my 3 days?

I think you mean Yun Tai Shan?
If so, yes, you can have a day trip there. You are suggested to take a bus to Jiaozuo first, and then take a taxi or private to the mountain.
