Yes, you will have to pay for the train to/from Wengen and Lauterbrunnen (or a gondola trip if you go elsewhere).
My suggestion for car drivers is to buy a Swiss Half Fare Card regardless of where you stay in Switzerland as you will be using trains and gondolas most likely anyway (in Wengen whether you want to or not! unfortunately). The card gets you 50% off all travel in Switzerland so it doesn't take too many trips to make up the purchase cost. With the Swiss Half Fare Card the cost to from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen is less than 4chf. Parking in Lauterbrunnen would also have a cost for you.
Most people stay there and use the trains and cable cars to explore the mountains and often don't touch their car during their stay there.
Wengen is a lovely town, but not convenient if you plan to use the car to explore the region - if your plan is to take the car frequently (where possible of course) I would recommend staying in Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald.
