Expect daily maximum temperatures in Salzburg of 15°C in October. But in October in most of Europe north of the Alps the weather is getting colder and is very changeable. Snow is starting to fall in the mountains, and the end of October will be cooler than the beginning.

You can get a train from Salzburg to Prague.

You can look all this up easily enough on the internet (I just did). The trick is to spell place names correctly, and use the local spelling when looking up trains etc.: Salzburg (not salzberg), and "Praha" is the Czech spelling of Prague.
I think this should be more emphasised on this site.

If you want to stop in Cesky Krumlov, you might want to consider a shuttle or a bus, as the train is not direct either from Salzburg or to Prague, as I understand it. Also, the train station in Cesky Krumlov is not very close to the areas where you would be sightseeing, so you would have to take a cab or bus once you get there.

There are a number of shuttles and buses that travel between Prague, Cesky Krumlov, and Salzburg.

One of the ones I see most often recommended here is the Student Agency bus: http://studentagencybus.com/order_en

There are also shuttles like the Lobo Shuttle or the Bean Shuttle. These will pick you up and drop you off right where you are staying, which is convenient.

As for the number of days in Prague, I would say at least 3. We had 5 nights there, which meant we had 4 1/2 days. That gave us enough time to see the most highly recommended sights and do some wandering, too. You could probably see the highlights in 3 days.
