Hi LeelouDallas, thanks for joining us!
Most tourists use the one month version of the Swiss Half Fare Card, which can best be purchased online as that's cheaper (see here). The one year Swiss Half Fare Card is nearly identical and can be found on the SBB site. There are no discounts on this one that I know of. You can buy it at any staffed station if you present a photo and your ID. Further information is available on the SBB site.
I don't which exact passes you're referring to, but if a "Halbtax" price is mentioned, then yes, you can buy them for that discounted price.
Have safe jumps!
