Arrive Osaka Airport at 5PM. Immediately get on train and go to Kyoto, staying near Kyoto Station. Stay 3 nights
Kyoto to Hiroshima-Stay 2 nights near Peace Park
Leave in the morning, Hiroshima to Osaka, stay one night near Osakananba Station

Lets take a look at your costs:
Kansai airport > Kyoto: ¥3,690 (75mins, 99km)
Kyoto > Hiroshima: ¥10,590 (112mins, 380km)
Hiroshima > Jr-namba: ¥9,950 (130mins, 357km)
Jr-namba > Kansai airport: ¥1,030 (60mins, 49km)
JR ticket cost: ¥25,260 for 4 legs
As the 7 day pass costs ¥28,300, unless you do a further ¥3040 of JR travel I recommend you purchase tickets. If you think you will do this much more travel, then a 7 day pass would be a convenient choice. :)
