Trenitalia tickets booking

Hello, I have a question. If I plan take a train from Malpensa Aeroporto to Baveno with a connection in Busto Arsizio, should I order the tickets online prior my arrival? Is booking necessary?

You don't need to pre-purchase the tickets. You can buy them once you arrive in Italy.

I have another question. When I looked up for the train on trenitalia website from Malpensa Aeroporto to Baveno, I got the schedule saying I need to make a connection in Busto Arsizio, but what it is showing that from Malpensa Aeroporto to Busto Arsizio it has to be bus, and from there I'm getting on a train. I'm confused. Why whould a bus be on a trenitalia website?

Because it's a direct limited stop bus (it only calls at two other train stations on the way) run by a train company (probably the Ferrovie Nord Milan which run the Malpensa Airport trains) on which only tickets sold by train companies are valid. Until last December this service was by a proper train.

You could also get the bus to Gallarate Train station (or taxi for €25) and then train from their to Stresa. It is very easy.
