You have to make seat reservations before you board the Glacier Express. If you do so at the rail station right before leaving, you'll run the risk that all seats are sold out as these trains are very popular in summer months. So if you'd really like to travel by Glacier Express, I recommend that you do make online seat reservations.
Yes, the Swiss Travel Pass covers the entire route to Tirano. You can check this by downloading the validity map. The leg St. Moritz-Tirano is beautiful (please find a description here) and you'd miss out on that if you stop in St. Moritz. On the other hand, if time is limited you will have to make choices, and the leg up to St. Moritz is wonderful as well. You will have done the entire Glacier Express route if you travel as far as St. Moritz, and you will have experienced be a very rewarding and beautiful journey.
