Hi Purplemidwif, thanks for joining MySwissAlps!
That sounds like a great trip. Swiss rail passes won't be useful for your hiking days in France and for the train ride Geneva-Chamonix. You can get regular tickets for that: https://www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/france. So when choosing a rail pass, you can best focus on the 2nd part of your holiday in Lauterbrunnen and Zurich.
There are several options:
You can't really go wrong with an educated guess. You'll save money compared to buying full-fare tickets with any of these options. If you want to run complete calculations, this step-by-step guide with downloads may be helpful: https://www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass.
Yes, you can reach Lauterbrunnen by train from Basel. Nearly all Swiss towns and spots can be reached with the excellent Swiss public transport system. Here's how it works: www.myswissalps.com/train/practical/howtotravel. I recommend the advanced timetable at https://www.myswissalps.com/timetable to plan your trips.
I hope these suggestions get you started.
