Hi Dickson and welcome to MySwissAlps!
- Gornergrat should be open - check the SBB timetable here to be sure for your specific date. It is the ski chairs and gondolas that will shut down from late April to early/mid June.
- Some hikes will be unavailable at that time yes. You link notes some lifts and cogwheels that will be shut down during your stay there. Some hikes are still accessible (I don't have personal experience there however). You can find these hikes on our "what to do" page for Zermatt and find which route is needed to get there (and compare to your link as to what is closed.
- Perhaps another member can put in their 2 cents about Schwarzsee at that time of year - it looks like most transport to get you there will be closed however.
Unfortunately its just not a great time to go as you know.
I hope this helped a little! Let me know if you have further questions/concerns!
