All this can be done at Nagoya Station?

Hello there,

We specialize in the JR Pass only and unfortunately I can't give you official support for the Hokuriku Area Pass.

My advise would be ask directly at the point of sale to confirm.

Assuming it works the same as the JR Pass (but in a limited area) you should be able to activate it at Nagoya station and start making reservations from there.

Hyperdia is also correct and you can trust it to build your itinerary with.

Enjoy Japan!
