Please Help: HNL SIN XMN

Please help - planning a trip for 3 pax for 2015 (business preferred but econ is fine) with the least this legal as a round trip?
1. HNL to SIN (via NRT or HND layover only) (stop for ~4 nights in SIN)
2. SIN to NRT or HND (stop for ~3 nights in Tokyo)
3. NRT to XMN (stop for ~5 nights in XMN)
4. XMN to HNL (via NRT layover only)

Will I be banned for backtracking?
Can i tell the agent that I am going to Toyko with SIN as stopover then returning from Tokyo to HNL with XMN as stopover?

What if I changed #2 to SIN to ICN (non-stop) and then #3 ICN to XMN (with layover in a China city) aviod touching Tokyo = not backtracking?

I must go to SIN and XMN; the tokyo or ICN part is just for fun since no direct *A flight from SIN to XMN (any other city suggestions are welcomed; BKK no pax, PEK too cold during that time)

I also have AA points, Amex MR points, and Chase UR to use if you have other suggestions beside using UA MP.

Thanks a ton!
