2Tourist entry into Tibet is regulated by the government. So have to buy a package with guide, permit, accommodation and transport out of Tibet (Train or flight). On the basis of these your visa will be applied at the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu.
So the best way is to buy a fixed departure tours from Kathmandu - Lhasa. The tour bus departs every Tuesday and Saturday. The tour is for 7 nights and 8 days.

3The Ktm-Lhasa bus line is a recurring rumor : it folded years back , after making less than ten runs. The reason was the rules mentioned above.
NB : if you use this route the only possible way , a group permit from Ktm , you´ll get a short time visa - max 3-4 weeks for all of xChina , non-renewable wihin the country. If you want to spend a longer time in xChina you should look in to either getting a new visa in xHong Kong , or flying Ktm-xChengdu.

4Travelling to china form Nepal overland via Tibet is only possible joining the authorized company which is organize tour to Tibet and based in Nepal.
There are 2 different tour to Tibet 7 night 8 days budget tour and private tour as you want.

Or if you don't want to go through Tibet and then there are no option to drive form Nepal to china need to take flight.
