1The cheapest way is to get a bus to the Rodoviaria, then catch a bus to Angras dos Ries. From there you can catch the ferry over.
The quickest and more expensive way is to get a direct transfer with your hostel/hotel. This will be a mini bus to Angras and then a privately hired boat across to Ilha Grande.
Bus timetables can be found on brasil by bus
The cheap ferry to Ilha goes once a day from Angras. You can also get it from Mangaratiba. There is a 'fast' boat that costs more and goes more regularly. Or you can source out a boat from the locals.

3There is a bus straight there. Ask your hotel for directions/bus number. A taxi should cost about 30 Reais to the rodoviaria.
I caught the bus to Angra - there are more frequent services from there to Ilha. Try to time your bus trip to connect with a boat. The bus station is a fair way (1-2km) from the terminal.
