You can see the Bernina Express timetable and reservation process here. In the booking process you can nominate you already have a ticket so you only pay for the reservation.
The Bernina Express starts at Chur not Zurich.
The 8.32 does not stop at St. Moritz. You have to get off at Pontresina and take a local train to St Moritz. Same for St Moritz to Tirano - you need to get to Pontresina to connect with the Bernina Express. You will need a separate reservation for each day.
Ticket-wise you need a ticket (from Zurich to St Moritz via Chur and Pontresina) and a ticket for St. Moritz to Tirano via Pontresina. Departure time is immaterial for ticket purchase. Ticket lasts all day.
Or if you have a Swiss Travel Pass just hop on the trains and wave your reservation when actually on the BEX.
There are other ways of doing this but I think that explanation is complicated enough. 🤓
