To reach the sites you mentioned from Mürren, you do need to descend to Lauterbrunnen and proceed from there. It takes 22 minutes with one (easy) change from train to cableway, and of course 22 minutes to travel back up to Mürren. Lauterbrunnen is a more central location as it's down in the valley with transportation in all directions. The better views are in Mürren en Wengen though. It's a matter of priorities I'm afraid :-)
If you do stay in Mürren you can't miss out on a visit to the Schilthorn. That's the mountain actually closer to Mürren than to any other village. And, be sure to take the boat to Thun, it's a wonderful ride.
As for your last day: it's doable if you don't mind a long day. It takes 4.5 to 5 hours to reach Chillon Castle from Mürren via the Golden Pass line (enter "Veytaux-Chillon" in the timetable as your destination, and enter Zweisimmen as the via-station after it first shows you the fastest routes). If you rush through the castle it takes 1.5 hour, but it deserves more time. Then count on 1.5 hour to reach Geneva. Add breaks to all of this, and an optional boat trip on Lake Geneva, and you're in for a long day.
Personally I would not stay in Interlaken for one night. Indeed it shortens the next day by an hour, but changing hotels takes quite some time so the net benefits are negative (time wise). Interlaken is not nearly as scenic as the smaller villages.
