Well, look right now for an accomodation in Salzburg, as it will be festival time and it could be packed.
Finding a car for 6 may not be so easy; all your destination can be reached by public transportation but driving to them would be much faster. It looks to me you are trying to reach too many places and you could even spend a little more time at your base towns. Halstatt and Munich would take a full day, leaving little time for the other places.

"How close is it from Tirol"

That depends on from where you're traveling, since Tyrol is decent-sized state and the Alps tend to lengthen the trip times. GaP, for instance, is about a 15-20 minute drive from the border town of Ehrwald, but probably close to 2 hours from Kitzb├╝hl.

"Suggest best places .v r nature lovers" Throw a dart on a map of Tyrol, and as long as you don't hit Innsbruck, you got it. Probably go for a ski resort. If you want to see more than just small patches of snow in August, look into Stubaital or Hintertux. And if you decide to stay in an Alpine base to enjoy the hiking, give yourself at least 3 nights. Alpine weather is fickle enough that you need a buffer of at least two full days to increase your chances of avoiding a cloudy rain-out.

There is a bus from the airport to the city center. About 20 minutes, I'd say.
Garmisch is several hours distant from Salzburg.
If Leutasch is what you mean, it is actually much closer to Garmisch, but is not on a train line. But do you mean Leutasch? If you need serious help you should care a bit more about spelling.
