I had a plan to travel up north from Madrid, Spain to Paris, France, but when I look up the date I want to travel, only options are to go east towards NARBONNE (France), TOULOUSE MATABIAU (France), then BORDEAUX ST JEAN (France). is this the only way to go to Paris?

No, but it is indeed the fastest one with least nr of changes for now. YOUR RENFE has in its wisdom decided to scrap all trenes de noche-and also the trenes between Donostia and Hendaya/Irun (frontera)-there are now only small EuskoTren -which are out of pass-use.

More interesting is the route via pyrnees-rodalies desde BCn to PUIgcerda/La Tor deCarol-then FR SNCF TER trains.
