Welcome to My Swiss Alps.
October is an iffy month in the high Alps. Could be great weather; could be snow and nastiness. Especially unprdictable on the high altittude trails. It's good that you will be there in early October. Many services shutdown at or around the 23rd of October for lack of customers, maintenance, or pre-ski season break.
Luzern is more predictable. Altitude means a lot.
To get started, check out the links available here:
Lots of good background information.

<<"Is the trip up Jungfraujoch unmissable or are there better uses of my time/money?">>
How can one offer an opinion on such items which depend on personal preferences?
Many love to spend the money to go up there; I've made 80 or 90 trips to Switzerland, including many in the Jungfrau region, and never felt it was worth the exorbitant price. To each his own.
PS- You will see Luzern anywhere in the German speaking regions....not Lucerne. The canton of Luzern is German-speaking, so I use Luzern instead of Lucerne, which is the French spelling.
