Hello Portia, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
A Swiss rail pass will help you save on travel costs. Which pass is best, can only be told if you have an exact and fixed list of travel plans: here's explained how to decide based on such calculations. Looking at the plans you've listed here, I think you should look into a 3 or 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass; you would use free travel days for the transfers Geneva-Lauterbrunnen and Lauterbrunnen-Basel. Another option would be the Swiss Half Fare Card.
The Jungfraujoch is discounted with both passes. The validity maps show the amount of discount. And in both cases, children travel along for free with the free Swiss Family Card. All details on validity areas, how the passes work, prices and promotions are available through the links I provided.
The Golden Pass route between Montreux and Interlaken is an excellent choice for your transfer Geneva-Lauterbrunnen! Further information on the Geneva region, including tips for day trips, are here, and for the Lauterbrunnen region here. Do check whether the activities you prefer are available, since November is kind of an in-between season often used for maintenance on cable cars and mountain trains.
I hope this helps you prepare for your trip!
