Hi Teng 72,
Welcome to the site! Well, there are a lot more passes than two, and you can find them here. InterRail is not included in that overview, but it's more or less similar to the Eurail Passes. The main difference is that Interrail is for European citizens and Eurail for anyone else.
When comparing the Swiss Pass to Interrail, the main difference is not in the train coverage. All your transfers are covered by both. The Swiss Pass includes much more discounts on mountain trips (cable cars, cogwheel trains, etc.), also includes buses and city transport, and free entrance to museums. That's why it's more expensive. The mountain trips are quite expensive, so it helps a lot to get a discount there. Once you have all the details of your trip, you can choose a pass as explained here. See the Swiss Pass page for what's included, how it works, prices and more. Be sure to take a look at the Swiss Peak Pass as well, as it offers free traveling to several mountains along your route: Brienzer Rothorn and Niesen near Interlaken and Rochers-de-Naye near Montreux.
Further information and hotel suggestions can be found on the pages of Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, Bern, Montreux and Basel.
