Hi sohsooyee, welcome to our website!
1. A national driving license is fine, as long as you're at least 18 years old. You'd better ask your rental company about their requirements. Please see here for driving tips.
2. Do you mean to visit Wengen where you wrote 'Wegen'? If so, it makes sense to do so the next day as you'll pass by Wengen anyway.
As for the rail pass: the Jungfrau VIP Pass fits your plans. It covers almost all you intend to do. Please see here for full details. The advantage of the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is that it covers a greater area, so you'll be able to adjust your plans if the weather in the mountains isn't good. The details are here. If you order from www.swissrailways.com/ en/products/ regionalbernese oberlandpass you can have it delivered to a Swiss airport, not one in Singapore. You'd better have it delivered to your hotel in Lauterbrunnen. That's more convenient and cheaper: just CHF 6 for the whole order. Let your hotel know you're expecting mail, just to be sure. Printing the pass yourself is not possible yet for this pass.
Pass prices can be different for each point of sale (local versus various webshops). Please go to the pass pages I linked to above, and click 'Price'. You can compare the options there. As you can see (click the links to the web shops), the Jungfrau VIP Pass is cheaper if you purchase it online through www.acprail.com/rail-passes/jungfrau-passes.
Passes will not sell out. Tickets to Jungfraujoch occasionally sell out in peak season (Summer), but not in October. Other tickets don't sell out either.
