Need advice on trip itinerary.

Total 3 pax - bringing my mum and aunty, both of them 60yo+

I have not been there for 10 years and I do not really know how their geography is. Please feel free to propose ideas and advice me.
Itinerary can play by ear, relax relax on some days oso ok.
The 2 old ladies have no special requests, they are leaving everything to me

Day 1 - Arrive at Taipei Taoyuan Airport, HSR to Taichung, visit night market - F&E

Day 2 - Travel to Nantou - Sun moon lake, formosan aboriginal culture village (where do i spend the night? Issit in Nantou?)

Day 3 - To cingjing farm? On the way there got places of interest?

Day 4 & 5 - Morning stay at Cingjing 1st? got places right? Afternoon leave for Hualien? On the way got things see? How many days do i stay at Hualien? 2 nights? I dont know got what in hualien. I am flexible to change the number of nights at each location.

Day 6 - Leave Hualien for Yilan. Wanna bring the old ladies go make cong you bing What else is there in Yilan?

Day 7 - Leave Yilan for Taipei. 淡水老街, 九份, 十份。 Which are the areas in Taipei which is more inaccessible and require car to go? cos last 2 days thinking to do F&E - no driver

Day 8 and 9 - F&E OTOT (give me some me time )

Day 10 - Ayam Kambing Home

Which are the days I can do F&E?
Which are those that I definitely need a driver?
Since there is only 3 of us, are there sedans for rental cos most i see is big cars... Will sedans be more cost efficient?

Please please please help me!

Thanks in advance

Is TaiNan and KaoHsiung close enough for single city 2-night hotel stay on free-and-easy on public transport, or stay one night in each city hotel?
