In the future feel free to keep posting on your original post especially if the topic remains the same. :) But not to worry!
Did you get enough help for choosing a base on your last post (https://www.myswissalp s.com/forum/topic/base -for-7-days-june-15th-june-22nd)?
Each town link on your last post has a tab for hotels and rentals that can help you look through your options on each town.
Lucerne and Bern are good towns to visit if you have the time. I wouldn't worry about Zurich unless you have something specific in mind there.
You can do the Gotthard Panorama Express line from Lugano to Lucerne (and then to your base town). You can either take the express train itself or if you miss the once-per-day departure, you can take a regional train on the same route. A bit of a round about way but it can work if you have the time.
Another idea is Venice Lugano but then to Locarno, Domodossola and on to Brig and your eventual base town. It isn't a specific panoramic train but it is very scenic from Lugano to Domodossola especially (and a bit more direct).
Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out your trips.
