"No chance against the US"? Depends on the type of conflict.

North Vietnam had "no chance" against the US, Afghanistan had "no chance" against the old Soviet Union, the IRA had "no chance" against Britain.

Agreed, in a conventional head-to-head military conflict, smaller and worse-armed forces have no chance, but they don't always agree to play by the rules the superpowers want.

US doesn't have to occupy North Korea. It only needs to destroy nuclear and missile facilities, and stop any NK offensive on SK.

My point exactly: the first part (destroying NK missiles) is easy, but the second part isn't.

Why would the US be any more successful this time, considering their experiences in the Vietnam and the Korean wars?

I don't see NK fighting in any form for more than month or two. Problem is dissolution of NK, and formation of independent armed gangs. They can try to enter China or Russia either as refugees or as fighters.

How far will China or Russia go to stop that from happening? That is real problem IMO.
