Traveller is interested in a mixture of boat, bus and plane itinerary. The following info is provided:

Oct 14, 2014

Ygn to Mandalay   14 hr  (6.30 pm to 8.20 am next day)
Ygn to Bagan        6 hrs         (9.42 am to 4.25 pm)  

Mandalay to Bagan  9 hrs (7am to 4 pm) one departure only
Bagan to Mandalay 9 hrs  (7am to 4pm).

Ygn to Mandalay    9 hrs   8.30 am to 5 pm first departure  
Mandalay to Bagan  4 hrs  8.30 am to 12.30 pm first departure
Bagan to Inle  9 hrs          7.30 am to 3 pm first departure
Inle (Taungyi) to Mandalay    9 hrs      6am to 3.30 pm 
Mandalay to Ygn    9hrs  8.30 am to 5 pm first departure 
Ygn to Inle (Taungyi)       10 hrs            5am to 3pm 

I propose Ygn to Mandalay by train. Mandalay to Bagan by boat. Then Bagan to Inle by air. Inle to Ygn by air. Ygn to Golden Rock by bus/car.
Pl note that it is best to take the first morning air flight as there may be delays sometimes.

Usually 2-3 stops on bus journey.

Half a day is not enough in Inle Lake and Bagan as there is much sight-seeing to do, visiting villages and market places. Lunches and dinners take some time. But much depends on what you want to do in your travel as each individual has different interests.
