Most of us on the forum suggest one of the mountain villages such as Wengen, Muerren, Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald as places to stay in the Bernese Oberland as they are prettier and more atmospheric than Interlaken, but as you have limited time at your disposal in your case I think Interlaken might be more convenient because the starting point for Schilthorn is Lauterbrunnen - Muerren and for First is Grindelwald. It would save travelling time between the two if you start from Interlaken. Also as its name suggests, Interlaken is between the two lakes, Thunersee and Brienzersee if you want to include a lake cruise.
Study the where to go and what to do sections on this site for other suggestions for the Bernese Oberland.
There are two ways to reach the Bernese Oberland from Geneva - the quick route via Bern or if you have time the slower, more scenic route on the Golden Pass route via Montreux, Zweisimmen and Spiez. Use the timetable to compare, entering Zweisimmen as a via station as the timetable will automatically show the quicker route by default.
Enjoy your stay.
