Hello Aey!

1. Possible. Take Shinkansen train from Kyoto station to Shin-Kobe station (about 40 minutes). Or take JR train Special Rapid Service from Kyoto station to Sannomiya Station (about 60 minuts).

2. Possible. Take Shinkansen train from Kyoto station to Hiroshima station (about 1 hour and 45 minute).

Kyoto- Kobe- Hiroshima in one day: Not recommended. Leave Kyoto early in morning, spend 5 hours in Kobe enjoying walking around city and Kobe beef lunch, then take Shinkansen to Hiroshima...stay one night in Hiroshima and visit castle and Peace memorial museum, might be ideal.
