While there are local buses for this route, they are not what most tourists use.

Instead, tourists use buses from companies especially set up to service the tourism industry.

I'd suggest you go look at any of those companies. My personal experience suggests you'd be wise to look at:

www.sinhcafevn.com.

And, if you want to book through any of their offices, make sure you go to the correct one. They have recently changed their 'name' to TheSinhTourist. Why? because in Vietnam anyone can copy a tradename, and in HaNoi (especially) there were literally dozens of copycat offices (which says much about the reputation).

You can choose to buy an Open Tour bus ticket for the whole length and hop on/off as you please, or buy individual legs at your leisure.

Go here for a list of prices & departure times for the open tour...

The train is a little more expensive.

You MUST get pre-paid tickets (as far in advance as you can). The train stations aren't that helpful for tourists, so many use their accommodation or a travel agent. As the Vietnamese will tack on any price they think they can get away with, check a few places for best price.

For train schedules have a look at:
