theshas129, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
The Lion Monument is a stone sculpture, by a Danish sculptor if I am not wrong, in memory of Swiss merceneries who died protecting the King of France during the 1789 revolution. Yes, it seems to be a popular place. i wonder why. A popular placee is a place surrounded by tourists taking selfies.
You can put your luggage in storage at all large railway stations, including Geneva Main Station or Geneva Airport.. However, the FIFA museum is not close to Zurich Main Station, so unless you are very keen on football (soccer) you may end up thinking it was not worthwhile.
The "plane museum" you mention is the Verkehrshaus (Transport Museum). Indeed an interesting place, with rare old airplanes in display, but also other types of vehicles. I have never heard of a Make-your-own-Swiss-Knife facility, but who knows. I think you can make chocolate at Jungfraujoch...
In Geneva enjoy the lakeshore landscape, and depending on your taste, visit Carouge (a flavor of Greenwwich Village in Geneva), the Old Town with the Cathedral where John Calvin used to preach, or the International Red Cross Museum.
