That's a fair chunk to cover in 6-weeks.

For flights, look into the Discovery Airpass -- it's designed for just the type of trip you're plnaning. there's a story about the pass here.

As far as I know there are no direct flights from Chiang Mai to Hanoi.
It's probably also worthwhile taking a look at the Suggested Itinerary section.

Sorry, meant to add for border crossings -- eg to Siem Reap either see the Visa and border crossing FAQ, the Siem Reap section or, particularly for that crossing, see this story.
