Questions about the Osaka-Tokyo Hokuriku Arch Pass

Hello Daniel-san! I am planning on getting the 7-day Osaka-Tokyo Hokuriku Arch Pass for the following itinerary, would you please let me know if this regional pass does not cover any of the trains listed below?
Is the only Shinkansen covered by this regional pass the Hokuriku Shinkansen? Or does it include other Shinkansens as well?
Also, is it possible to make a trip from Tokyo to Kyoto / Osaka to Tokyo late in the evening at around 7/8 pm?
I do not want to risk having the trains stop running on me mid-travel. Thank you so much for your help!
