You can rent a coach from a local tour or car servive for your from Xichang to Lijiang airport between August 12-19th. I 'm afraid you can only stay at the guest houses or home inns in Lige village and Lugu Lake and you can find many when you reach there. Personally, I think it will cost too much to rent a coat on the whole way and it's hard to give you the estimate cost. You can just rent a coach when you move from one place to another. From Chengdu to Xichang, there are both public coach and trains, so you can just choose one accordign to your schedule and favoite.

To be frank, your itinerary seems complex and you have arranged your starting, duration and arriving time very precise. However, fact is usually dofferent from a plan, and the only way to put your schedule into practice is booking a tour through a China Travel company (personally, I advise Travechinaguide). Although you have one who can speak fluent Chinese, but the public transportation in China is usually more complicated than what you think of especially for you a group of ove 10 numbers. Anyway, wish you a good trip in China!
