Hi Arijit, thanks for your first post here!
i) It is certainly doable. It is a lot of traveling though, and a lot of changing from one hotel to the other. That might be a challenge with a young child, but if you want to see all these scenic routes, this is the way to do it. You've connected them well and you will see a lot within a few days.
ii) You need seat reservations for the Glacier Express and Bernina Express. The Wilhelm Tell Express is an optional reservation. I would not buy it if you're on a budget. Please see the links for details. You will get discounts on Jungfraujoch and Pilatus, but you don't need to book in advance. The Rhine Fall boats are not discounted.
iii) Some of the cheaper hostels have a shared kitchen. Please see here to get started. Or, when your itinerary is final, post to the Accommodation forum if you can't find anything.
iv) A very rough estimate is CHF 150 per adult per day for a basic vacation with not much luxury. This does not include the flight to/from Switzerland, but does include the travel pass, accommodation, food and excursions. The cost really vary from person to person. You'd better to the math yourself.
