>> Quite sad for the close of cableway from Kriens to Pilatus Kulm during my visit ... I will take a boat ... or a train from Luzern to Alpnachstad then go up and back on the cogwheel train from Alpnachstad.
It's not so bad! The cogwheel train from Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm is the steepest cogwheel railway in the world, and is a wonderful experience - you will get to experience it twice. Last time I went to Pilatus, I actually chose to go up and back on the cogwheel, even though the cableway was operating. Ascending and descending on the cogwheel train are really two different experiences in my opinion, both worth having!
You have several other cable car rides planned, so you won't be completely missing out on cable-car experiences.
>> During the 3 days in Lauterbrunnen, could you advise the best route for me?
Best route to where?
In addition to information I have already provided, here are some other excursions that you could consider during your stay in Lauterbrunnen - some in the Jungfrau Region, others in the area surrounding Interlaken or a bit further afield.
- Train to Wengen - stroll around village, walk to lookout (possible year-round)
- Schilthorn - bus from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, cable car Stechelberg-Gimmelwald-Mürren-Schilthorn - operating until 10 November 2018
- Aareschlucht (Aare Gorge) near Meiringen - open until 4 November 2018
- Gondola to the Niederhorn from Beatenberg - operating until 11 November 2018
- Funicular Mülenen to Niesen Kulm (in the Kandertal i.e. Kander Valley) - operating until 11 November 2018
- St Beatus Caves - open until 11 November 2018
>> Is the Trummelbach Falls open during my visit?
Trümmelbach Falls are open until the "beginning of November", so it's not possible to say whether that includes 3-5 November. When you are there, you could check whether they are still open.
