1. Generally skies are clearer in the (early) morning, so that's often the best time of the day for a visit to the Jungfraujoch. There are no guarantees though and you can best check local weather forecasts the day before for up to date information. You can plan your trip with the aid of the timetable
. The trip will take (at least) half a day. Assuming you'll be visiting early in the morning, you will still have time to plan another activity in the afternoon.
2. The timetable allows you to plan the trip to the Titlis (enter 'Kleintitlis') as well. This trip will take a whole day from Interlaken and I think you should reconsider it. The Interlaken region is stunning and you could easily spend the other day here too. This list
provides an overview of nearby day trips and attractions.
3. Which pass is best, depends on your final itinerary and personal preferences. In your case, I think it's worth to look in to Swiss Half Fare Cards
. If you prefer not having to buy discounted tickets for many trips, you may consider a 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
for all five of you.
4. Chocolate factories are in Broc and Flawil, but both are far off from Interlaken and thus hard to incorporate in such a short stay. You can visit the daily chocolate show in restaurant Schuh in Interlaken though.
5. Don't worry about vegetarian food: both supermarkets and restaurants offer a wide variety of vegetarian food. I'm less sure about vegan. I think that in most cases the chef will be able to make a plate that meets your wishes if you ask for it.
