What I would like is when I click on the .hc file for it to open VeraCrypt > select a Drive > prompt for a password without me doing anything. Then when I enter the password and it opens File Explorer

Is this possible?

Yes, it is possible. You will have to make a batch file which will launch veracrypt with desired parameters and then configure explorer to open hc files such batch file.

This following example mounts any volume passed by file explorer assigning letter X

1 . openhc.cmd:
"C:\Program Files\VeraCrypt\VeraCrypt.exe" /l X /v %1
2 . right click .hc file, select open with program, browse for openhc.cmd and check always open hc with this program
