Hello jayashree, and welcome! You should use the 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. If your trips Konstanz-Munich-Swiss border are the only ones you plan to make in Germany, it's best to buy regular tickets for these German trips instead of a rail pass.
The 4 free travel days of your Swiss Saver Flexi Pass don't have to be consecutive and can be spread over your 5 day stay. You should use free travel days on your first and last day in Switzerland and on two other days. On the remaining day, a 50% discount will apply.
It depends on your country of residence (I assume this is the US?) and the reseller you choose whether a 3rd person can be added to the 2 for 1 offer. Some resellers grant a discount for this 3rd person too, others don't. In that case you can buy your grandmother a regular 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. Just enter your country of residence in the upper right corner of the Swiss Flexi Pass page
or use the direct link for your country in the 2 for 1 topic, select a reseller and add a 3d person during the order process. By the way, there are no senior discounts.
Both Lucerne and Interlaken would be good options for your base. The timetable will help you to plan your trips. Most of them are doable, but you won't manage to take the Bernina Express trip and return the same day. There are lots of alternatives for shorter scenic trains trips though, such as Lucerne-Interlaken via Meiringen, Interlaken-Gstaad via Zweisimmen, Interlaken-Brig/Zermatt via Kandersteg and Goppenstein, and so on.
Please note that you won't be able to ski from Interlaken. You'll have to get up at least to Wengen, Mürren or Grindelwald and maybe take one of the cable cars or mountain trains there.
