It looks like you prepared for your trip very well! As for your questions:
1. Yes, Interlaken is centrally located and thus a convenient place if you consider to visit not only the Bernese Oberland, but Lucerne and Bern as well. You can find hotel suggestions here
2. A 4-day Swiss Saver Pass would be the best option in my opinion. It will get you free traveling almost everywhere, so you don't need tickets expect for mountain trips such as the Jungfrau (which will be discounted with the pass). Since everything is included you'll be flexible without spending more money. For example, if the weather is nice in Lucerne you could decide to do a trip up the Rigi instead of going to Bern. That trip is included also.
Pass prices in SGD can be found here
. Further information is on the Swiss Pass page
If you have a Swiss Pass, the trip from Paris to Interlaken will be free from Basel. You only need a ticket from Paris to Basel, which you can find here
on the same website that is selling the pass. You can book these tickets up to 3 months before traveling (so, from August 17). I would advice to book as early as possible. Likewise, your outward trip is free to Domodossola. From there on, you need tickets to Milan, which can be found here
3. You can just board the train with your pass, nothing else is needed. See here
for more about seat reservations.
November is indeed not high season, but if the weather is good it's a beautiful season to explore the mountains.
