>> I'll be staying at Interlaken from April 26-30 ... Is there any other information regarding cable cars, trains or even hiking trails in the Swiss Alps region that will be closed on April due to maintenance or any other reasons?
Apart from the mountain transport already mentioned in your post, the train to the Brienzer Rothorn does not reopen until 2 June.
High-altitude hiking trails will probably be closed. You can get information about the status of trails from the local tourist offices.
>> April 27: Interlaken - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald - First (Bachsee) - Interlaken
The gondola from Grindelwald to First will be operating. You can get information about the status of the trail to Bachalpsee from one of the local tourist offices.
>> April 28: Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Grütschalp - Schilthorn - Trummelbach Falls - Interlaken
Trümmelbach Falls will be open.
>> April 29: Interlaken - Schynige Platte / Harder Kulm - Interlaken + Lake Thun / Brienz
Rockoyster has already mentioned that the train to Schynige Platte will not be operating, but the funicular to Harder Kulm will be. Boats will be operating on both the Brienzersee and Thunersee (Lake Brienz, Lake Thun).
>> April 30: leaving for Lucerne
You will be able to get to the mountains around Luzern. Whether or not the Pilatus cogwheel railway from Alpnachstad has reopened will depend on the weather. You can check here before going up:
If the cogwheel train is not operating, you can go up and back on the cableway from Kriens.
