Too many and too often!
Can't help about the platform question - and I think that might vary depending on whether you are catching a TER or TGV in any case.

If SNCF are running a replacement bus service from Bayonne to SJPDP it will start from the car park right outside the Bayonne station. As it will almost certainly be surrounded by dozens of people with rucksacks and trekking poles it should be easy enough to spot.

To Santiago and back (roads & paths; Tours; Francés; sea; roads & paths)
@Bilbo, is there a reason why you want to change trains in Dax. People usually change trains in Bordeaux when their destination is Bayonne and they are not on a direct train from Paris (I guess that's what "coming down" means ☺).

in the end this wasnt a problem the train was waiting for ours and we were straight on it ,the paris section was a challange as metro was down and we ended up walking between the train stations in the early hours then waiting in a doorway overnight as station was shut ,whoops .
also the bayonne to sjpdp is not outside the station but down the road ,right as you walk out of the station
