    To get to St Pancras from Heathrow you can take the tube all the way. From St Pancras you can either get a bus or change tubes to get to Euston station. Hell, you could even walk, it's not that far. Takes an hour at most from Heathrow to St Pancras on the Picadilly line. 5 minutes on the circle/hammersmith and city line from there to Euston.

    However, the fastest way is probably the overland train to Paddington and a tube from there. More expensive, though. From Paddington you can go straight to Euston without needing to go to St Pancras, however.

    No idea about the second one.

    SouthEastern and Virgin trains - You can buy tickets on the day at the station, but it will be much cheaper to buy a ticket in advanced (a week or more in advanced to get the cheapest prices)
