9 person cannot hire van leh, need mini bus.
If you have yet to book tickets, will advise to fly in via Kaohsiung and out by taipei.

Day 1 From Kaohsiung airport to Chiayi
Day 2 from Chiayi to Alishan or fenchihu
Day 3 from Alishan to Hualien (Damn far sia, perhaps can google and check how far it is) So still advisable to stay cingjing for a night.
Day 5 from Hualien to Taipei(another long drive), do consider a stopover at Yilan or Luodong.

With so many people and small kids in a vehicle, I'd suggest not trying to cover so much of Taiwan. End up lots of "touch n go" only.

The east and west coasts aren't well connected due to the huge mountain in the middle, so Alishan - Hualien will take a long time to cover. Suggest to stick to 1 coast for a trip of such duration.

any reason why you've shortlisted the places though?
