High-Speed Train refer to the G-train with a speed obove 250-300km/h, while Bullet train refers to the D-train with a top speed of 250km/h in China. Both of the two types of the trains are running fast.
Therefore, there is no high speed train from Hangzhou to Guangzhou and from Hangzhou to Beijing, but there is a bullet train from Hangzhou to Beijing.
There is also no bullet train between Beijing and Guangzhou. You can take bullet train from Beijing to Wuhan and then take high speed train from Wuhan to Guangzhou.
It is hard to say whether it is cheaper by train or air. Sometimes, if you get a discount air ticket, it may be cheaper than the train ticket. Anyway, you'd better pay attention to the update airfare and train fare before travelling.
For the detailed information about those trains, such as the price, time schedule , you can search for this webpage:
