Mallaig is a tiny wee place - it isn't big enough for the car rental companies to operate there. I think you'll need to adjust your plan.

Inverness to Kyle by train, then a car-hire, then do the Mallaig ferry by foot?

No chance. Derek G has got the best idea. Just to expand on that, there are one or two local car hire companies on Skye that will deliver and collect at Kyle of Lochhalsh and Armadale. So if you book with one of them, you should be able to take the train from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, and then another train from Mallaig to Fort William. Both very scenic lines, by the way.

hire a car in Kyle

you wont get any company that will let you drop off at Mallaig but you can hire in Kyle

its Kyle taxis they will probably run you to the mallaig ferry if you asked
