That is correct avoid ticket resellers and book directly with each countries rail site
Yes it is possible to book point to point tickets from North America but it is important to remember that tickets purchased for international travel from the Hungarian rail site MAV must be collected from a ticket kiosk in Hungary and cannot be printed at home.

Cesky Krumlov is a tiny village, of course it wont have direct connection with a foreign capital. You will have to go by Prague, or by some other obscure connection. For this info, look in the czech forum.
The only other way from Vienna to Český Krumlov is train to České Budějovice (with an easy change in České Velenice) and then local bus from there.
You will see that it also gives the option to Český Krumlov, but the railway station in CK is out of town and the bus is a lot more convenient. The bus station in CB is across the road from the railway station and there are regular local buses to CK from there.
