Yes, you'll manage to take the Bernina Express to Tirano and then return by Bernina Express (or normal regional trains) to Chur/Zurich the same day. The route is explained here: https://www.myswissalps.com/berninaexpress/gettingthere. The Bernina Express train that's available during your travel dates doesn't stop in St. Moritz, but it does in Pontresina which is close to St. Moritz. You can study the Bernina Express timetable through the link on the page I mentioned, and/or consult the general Swiss timetable. How to work with this timetable is explained in detail at https://www.myswissalps.com/timetable.
You can add variation on your way back by traveling to Chur/Zurich via Zernez (in the Lower Engadine: https://www.myswissalps.com/lowerengadine), Saglians and Landquart.
Although you can travel back and forth in one day, it would be nice to spend one or more nights in the Upper Engadine (https://www.myswissalps.com/upperengadine). In fact it's one of the best destinations for a winter holiday, although late November/early December isn't fully winter yet. Please see www.myswissalps.com/wheretogo/winter.
I think you've put together a very nice itinerary. The 15-day Swiss Travel Pass seems to be an ideal choice for your plans. Just hop and off trains wherever and whenever you like. All information can be found at https://www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass. You'll hardly need any reservations, except for the Bernina Express if you want to travel in panoramic trains: https://www.myswissalps.com/berninaexpress/tickets. If one or two days of your stay aren't covered by this pass, you can get regular tickets (https://www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/switzerland) or Saver Day Passes (https://www.myswissalps.com/saverdaypass), depending on your plans.
Information, activity suggestions and accommodation tips for the towns on your list can be found here:
Grindelwald is at higher altitude than Interlaken, so there's more chance of snow in the village. But you shouldn't count on it, as your travel dates aren't in the best snow months yet (https://www.myswissalps.com/besttimetovisit/winter). Interlaken on the other hand is located more centrally.
