1 & 2) If you download the map from our Swiss Pass page
, you'll see what's included. Panoramic routes and boats are on the map as well. My recommendations for Lucerne would be to take the Golden Pass Panoramic train from Lucerne to Montreux. Here's
the information about booking seats. A boat trip from Lucerne to Flüelen would be really nice as well. Or at least take a boat to Vitznau and do the Rigi mountain trip from there.
3) The Swiss Pass page links to a list of included museums. It's really a matter of personal interests. I like the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucerne, although it's not free but 50% discounted.
4) I would skip the Chocolate train. It's a great excursion but the train departs early morning from Montreux, so I think it's impossible to try and do that from Lucerne. This topic
discusses more options to see chocolate making.
5) See the timetable
for your options. An alternative for a better night's sleep is to book an hotel close to the airport. Here's a list
of excellent airport hotels; many of them offer a free transfer to the airport.

I hope this helps you out!
