    Grab a bus from Morchit station (Bangkok's northern terminal, accessable from the northern end of the BTS Skytrain) to Mae Sod (aka Mae Sot) in Tak province. Then grab a local songthaew (shared pickup taxi) for the twisty road to Umphang . Many local guesthouses and resorts in Umphang run trips to the Tilawsu waterfall daily. 3 or 4 days should be doable.

    See bus schedule here for Bangkok to Mae Sod

    Instead of returning to Bangkok, however, consider going to Chiang Mai and getting one of the direct flights from there to Phuket on Air Asia or Thai Airways.

    Yes it's good to pre-book rooms for Songkran period. I keep 8 cheap clean rooms aimed mostly at the backpacker market but we don't take pre-bookings, just rely on daily walk-ins. On sites like this I don't advertise, anyway you'll find a room somewhere in the old city.
