The easiest way is to see a travel agent like Rosa┬┤s tours in Quesada, they often know of special offers too.

Alicante to Barcelona takes 5 hours not 17 and if you are over 60 buy a Dorada card you will get a big discount you can buy them in a Travel agent when you book the train

You need to book a ticket from Albatara to Alicante then another ticket to Barcelona otherwise you will be going to Valencia on the fast train from Albatara

Here is also a link to the Renfe site in English http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/index.html I suppose it's a sign of the times, but if you go to a train station and buy a ticket it's more expensive, so you are better off if you can to buy them online.
