Welcome to MySwissAlps! If you base yourself in both Lucerne and Interlaken for a couple of days, you'll manage to cover most of your interests. Starting and/or ending your journey in Zurich allows you to explore the city. Even half a day is sufficient for some local sightseeing there, but of course you can choose to spend one or two nights in the city if you wish explore it more thoroughly.
Lucerne is a great town, with lots of day trip options. Do mind that November is low season and that availability of mountain trips should be carefully checked. The same goes for the Interlaken area. Tips for day trips can be found here. The Jungfraujoch is accessible all year round. From Interlaken, a day trip to Zermattis perfectly possible. But again, you could spend one or two nights there if that's what you prefer. Unfortunately the Glacier Express has an autumn break in November. If you're very curious about the route you could ride (part of) it in regular trains. It will require a couple of changes along the way though.
Trains to Paris leave from Zurich, Geneva and Basel. For your plans, Zurich or Basel will probably work best.
Purchase options for the Swiss Travel Pass are listed here.
