Thanks for signing up with MySwissAlps!
1. A 4-day Swiss Travel Pass would certainly work. It gets you from Basel to Gimmelwald for free (even the cableway is included). It also includes a free trip to Mount Rigi near Lucerne, should you be interested in that. I recommend to take a look at the map to see what else is included or discounted so you can see whether that matches your plans.
Be sure to print the pass at home so you won't loose time in Basel: please visit www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass (no delivery fees) with 1-3 business days, so don't wait to the last minute.
2. That would not work as the pass expires 5 minutes after boarding. The 5:00 AM limit is for traveling after midnight. So it would allow you to take the last train from Lucerne to Zurich, for example. A regular ticket costs CHF 29.
