Possible but could be a long day. I don;t know how much stamina you have.

Check the SBB Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to see if the length of the round trip plus the excursions is something you want to undertake.

You might want to consider just Gornergrat.

That's why I said to check the timetable. The SBB timetable includes both Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn (aka Matterhorn Glacier Paradise) from Zermatt.

Sir, Checked the timetable, but how much time is ideal to be spent at each location(Klein Matterhorn & Gornergrat) is what I need from you guys

Well at a minimum I would allow 1 hour at each plus 1 hour to explore Zermatt seeing you are there.

It’s a personal choice. Maybe read this?

That's a funicular station up the mountain. Usually it's where people start/end a hike, but you can also simply enjoy the good view of the Matterhorn from there.

Dear Arno :

Can I visit it keeping in mind that I'm already planning a visit to Gornergrat & Klein Matterhorn

I think you'll barely have time during your day to do Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn - I'd skip Sunnegga. If you aren't hiking around there then it is "just" another view of the Matterhorn.
