I heard that there are direct buses at Jiexiu Railway Station to the scenic area every day, which is located opposite the Jiexiu Bus Station.
The translation of Jiexiu Railway Station is 介休火车站, pronounced as Jie Xiu Huo Che Zhan.

You have two options, bullet train or ordinary train. If you plan to take ordinary train, you need to go to Beijing Railway Station and take train to reach Jiexiu (介休). Available trains are K603, 2602 and K609. It takes 10 to 15 hours. A hard berth costs CNY 190 and a soft one costs CNY 285. In front of the railway station, you can find buses for Mianshan. It costs around CNY12.

Or you can take high speed train D2005 from Beijing West to Lingshidong. It takes around 4.5 hours. The first class seat costs 269 and the second class seat costs CNY 195. Then you can catch bus from the railway station to Mianshan. It costs CNY 5 for each person.

It's winter in Feb. So it's very cold on the mountain. You'd better wear thick winter clothes. There is no direct flight or train from there to Lijiang. You may get back to Lingshidong and then take train to Xi'an. Then you can fly from Xi'an airport to Lijiang directly.

Hi, you don't have to go and transfer at Taiyuan.
It is suggested to take a train from Baotou to Jiexiu. There is a direct bus at Jiexiu Train Station to the scenic area, leaving around 08:00. If you miss that, I suggest hiring a car to reach then.

there seems to be no tour to Mianshan on this website. I think half a day is enough for you to visit the main sites there. There is no public transportation to Mianshan, I think you will have to rent a car.
