Hello Prasad, and welcome to MySwissAlps,
All Swiss Pass information can be found on the Swiss Pass page. That includes a downloadable map of what's covered for free and what's discounted. Prices in INR are here. Public transport timetables are all here. Hotels close to the rail stations and attractions can be found here. The mentioned pages should help you to do most of your planning. As for you questions:
1) 2) See the timetable for how to travel. Discounted tickets for the Jungfrau can be purchased at any rail station by presenting your pass. Discounted Titlis tickets can be purchased at the cable car station upon presenting your pass.
3) You can best travel to the rail station 'Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall'. See the timetable. The trip is free with your pass.
4) I would suggest to take the Golden Pass route to travel from Lucerne to Geneva: Lucerne - Interlaken Ost via Meiringen, Interlaken Ost - Zweisimmen, Zweisimmen - Montreux and finally Montreux - Geneva. Details are in the timetable. You don't need reservations/surcharges.
5) You don't need to book the Chocolate Train. You can also visit the factories on your own by traveling with your Swiss Pass from Geneva.
6) There are various trips from Lucerne. They're free with your pass. Lucerne to Flüelen is a great longer one. Also you can take a boat from Lucerne to Vitznau and take the train up the Rigi mountain there. This is all free with your pass.
7) Interlaken is not worth a city tour. There isn't much to see; it's the surroundings that are interesting. The other cities can be explored on foot from the rail station at your own pace. Additional city transport, if needed, is included in the Swiss Pass. I would advice not to spend too much time on cities, but rather on the Alps. Lucerne is worth exploring though, but you will see it anyway since you'll stay there.
Enjoy your stay!
