Welcome to MySwissAlps! Please have a look at myswissalps.com/ train/practical/ 2nd1stclass for the difference between 1st and 2nd class. Specifically for the Jungfrau region you can expect 1st class to be available on all trains in the valleys (down from Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald) and boats. Mountain transport like cogwheel trains and cable cars are 2nd class only.
The prices of the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland take into account that 1st class is not available everywhere: a 1st class pass is not that much more than a 2nd class pass, whereas normal 1st class train tickets are 75% more expensive. So if you value the extra comfort one could say it's worth it, unless you only plan to use the mountain transport.
Regarding the question you e-mailed: the pass can not be printed at home. If you go to www.swissrailways.com/ en/products/ regionalberneseoberlan dpass, you can select a different delivery address and have it mailed to your B&B in Murten.
There is no 3 day pass, but the 4 day pass seems a good fit as you can also use it for your transfer from Bern (in your e-mail you mentioned Murten) to Gimmelwald. If you travel from Murten you need to buy a ticket from there to Bern. From Bern it's free with the pass.
