Hi there,

These days IC cards are interchangeable. You just buy one and use it everywhere.

As for travel between Kyoto - Osaka, just buy normal tickets for this part. A one way trip is 560yen, while a Kansai Pass costs 2,000yen per day and does not include the subway in any event.

Hope this helps,
