Hi Daniel, thanks for your information.

Does the pass require activation? If so, is there office at the Nagoya International Airport to activate the pass?

Yes it does, you can do so at Nagoya station but not at Nagoya Airport.

I am going to Nagoya directly from USA and there is no way for me to activate the ticket. So, I need to purchase another ticket from the airport to Nagoya station? Can I use the Airport -> Nagoya in advance and get it validated when I arrive Nagoya Station?

Travel between Nagoya Airport and Nagoya station is on the Meitetsu railway. This part is not included in any JR Pass, as it is a private railway company and requires a additional tickets.
