>> Do we need boots and very cold weather coats ... I am particularly thinking of the area around Jungfraujock if we get that far.
As long as you have shoes that have a good grip and are reasonably waterproof, that would be sufficient for walking about on the snow on the plateau at the Jungfraujoch. The snow there is compacted, so you don't sink into it. There is a slope up to the plateau from the Jungfraujoch building, so shoes with a good grip will help avoid slipping, as it sometimes gets a bit icy with all the foot traffic. I have attached a couple of pictures taken in December 2016 of people walking about on the plateau (and the views you get from there).
In addition to your clothing layers, a cap, scarf and gloves can go a long way towards helping you to stay comfortable in chilly temperatures, and are compact, light and easy to carry.
