Hi thomasalbert, thanks for your post!
The note means that people can only board in Celerina and not use this train to travel from St. Moritz to Celerina and then get off. Indeed only the main stops may be offered when booking seats, but you can simply pick the next (or previous) stop if you want to board in Celerina. The next stop is Samedan, the train will stop there 5 minutes later. Of course you should have a ticket or rail pass that includes traveling from Celerina, but for the seat it does not matter if you book from a different station than where you board. The train will stop in Celerina in all cases. It's not a stop on request.
Seat selection is indeed not available for all trains. The direction of traveling can't be picked anyway, because the train will change direction in Chur, and again in Brig, so a forward facing seat will be facing backward on the next leg. A travel map can be found on the Glacier Express page.
I'm not sure if you also need a rail pass, but if you do, you can order along your seat reservations when you purchase the pass. There's a discount of up to $75 being offered on your entire order (until tomorrow). Please see the promotion page for details.
