Hi Patsy, welcome to MySwissAlps!
You plan seems certainly achievable to me. The one day to Zermatt is kind of a risk: if the weather is bad that day there's not much to see there, so in that case you may want to go to Bern straight away. There are indeed lockers in Brig.
There's not much to see in Interlaken. The Jungfrau region south of Interlaken is wonderful, but I don't know whether you can fit that into your schedule. There's plenty to see closer to Lucerne.
Please note that the Swiss Pass is not for tourists. What you need is the Swiss Travel Pass. You don't want to purchase it ahead of time, but just in case you haven't checked our price section yet: it's a lot cheaper to buy it online. You'll get a $50 discount via www.raileurope.com/ rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html. Or you can buy through www.raileurope-world.com/pass/swiss-pass for a low price, and possibly an extra discount if you buy no later than August 26: www.raileurope-world.com/deals/great-deals-to-tour-Europe.
An 8-day Swiss Travel Pass is more expensive than an 4-day pass, but the difference is not that big. If I understand you correctly, your trip from Domodossola to Zurich is 7 days. An 8-day pass could make sense, but to be sure you'd have to list all your trips and do the math. The Swiss Travel Pass also covers Domodossola to Brig, as well as the cogwheel train to Mount Rigi and the boat back to Lucerne.
