Hi harry131! Your trip from Zurich to Geneva can easily be made by train; it's very comfortable. The timetable
mentions all possible connections. As for your rail pass: based on this plan, a Swiss Half Fare Card
could be good indeed (yes, that's also valid in Zurich; this is displayed at the validity map you can download from the Swiss Half Fare Card page I just linked to). But it depends on whether you'll make the trip Zurich-Geneva by train and what your plans are for the last few days in/from Zurich. If quite some traveling is involved, you may consider a Swiss Flexi Pass
instead. I don't know when you'll be traveling and if you'll be with someone else, but you can see whether you're eligible for the 2 for 1 deal
on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass.
Some further ideas: only make the trip to the Jungfraujoch is weather is still good. If not, it's a waste of your money. There's a lot to see and do in Zurich (consider the Swiss national museum, the lake, the old town, botanical gardens, viewing point Uetliberg and so on), but making a few trips out of town would be nice too. The Rhine falls can be visited from Zurich. Extra day trips to the scenic Lucerne and Interlaken regions would be great too.
In case you still need to book some hotels, these overviews for Geneva Airport
may be convenient.
