Check out this website that "Soapsuds" found. It has tons of rail info, pretty sure you'll find your answers here:

Link to rail pass guides. Renting a car is not worth the $$ or trouble, unless you really want the freedom (at a cost, of course, and be prepared to drive a manual). Better bet is a bus. Cheaper and more frequent. Out of curiosity: why through Seville instead of through Madrid? Seems the latter might be more direct, although going through the heart of Andalucia would be a lot more scenic!

Be careful of choosing a speed train/night train; the fast trains are a LOT more expensive than the other options.

Lisbon --> Seville is about ten hours.
Lisbon --> Madrid is about nine hours.

Seville --> Valencia is about six (?) hours.
Madrid --> Valencia is probably under four hours.

I will double check this with a friend of mine who lived in Barcelona for eight years and goes back frequently.

Take that route to Valencia. It is a good route; it's not bad, and it is scenic, too. It is even nicer if you make it up along the coast to eventually Barcelona, if you want to go that far .into. Spain.
