other costs and trains I can use

Is it posible to use the shinkansen between Naritia Airport and Kyoto. Please let me know any trains that the pass is not valid for - I am travelling between Narita, Kyoto, Toyama, Fukui and Tokyo.

Is there any other cost except for the initial price of the Pass?

Is there a limit to the number of trains you can travel on during the period of validity?
