Can anyone tell me the most time-efficient and cost-efficient route from the US West coast to Noumea, New Caledonia?

I am of course finding a lot of flights from Brisbane, AU and Sydney, AU to Noumea, New Caledonia on the national airline of New Caledonia, AirCalin.
However, I am wondering:
a) Are there any airlines running direct flights (and at what schedule and cost) from Hawaii to Noumea?
b) Are there any alternative routings that I'm not considering which would be lower travel time or lower cost? The Air Calin Route Map
shows direct flights to Tokyo and Auckland.
c) If I were to get a very good price on a ticket, for example from Seattle-Tokyo and then a separate AirCalin booking from Tokyo to Noumea, would that have any chance of being lower cost than Seattle->LA->Sydney->Noumea?
