There are two options if you want to go to Malang by land. Take a bus or train. How long it takes of course depends on how far is the place from Malang.
You can take long trip from Jakarta to Malang by bus which spend 21 hours. It costs much cheaper than an air plane or even a train ticket. It is about IDR 240,000 per person including 1 voucher for dinner. You can see other cities they passed and the view better.
Another option if you go to Malang is by train (in Indonesian it is called kereta api). There are 2 kinds of train from Jakarta to Malang. They call it Business and Executive class. The Business stops in every small station they pass. So I recommend you to take The Executive.
Here is the schedule of train between Malang and some big cities in Java.

Actually there is still another option if you go to Malang by land. It is going with your own/rent car. You can decide by yourself when, where, how long and how often you want to stop.
COMBINATION OF THE FIRST TWO OPTIONS
By this option, you can fly to Surabaya. There are more flights and airlines to Surabaya. Then take a taxi or rent a car to Malang. The trip between Surabaya-Malang will take about 2 to 3 hours.
From Surabaya you can take taxi or rent a car and share with other passengers. It also can happen that you are the only passenger. Indonesian call this kind of taxi, travel. The price can be different between the travels (IDR 80,000-90,000). You pay less than USD 10.00 for the trip from the airport in Surabaya to right in front of the door of your destination in Malang.
