Darjeeling and Shillong are totally on different sides of Guwahati. There are no direct train station to any of these hill station.

Shillong nearest train station is in Guwahati .

Darjeeling nearest train station is in Siliguri.

I would suggest :

You take a train to Siliguri - go to Darjeeling - comeback to Siliguri - take a train to Guwahati - drive to Shillong - come back to Guwahati

hey, darjeeling is in west bengal, you have to go via kolkata, & shillong is in meghalaya, you have to reach assam first then drop in guwahati & then shillong by cab or bus.
