Hi hokiefrenzy and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!
I understand your concern.
I haven't tried it but I do not think that even smaller strollers will fit on the aisle on the Glacier Express. Perhaps in the beginning or end of the carriges you can find some place for it but then you cannot stay with her while she is asleep (or maybe standing next to her?)
Do you have a Swiss Travel Pass? If yes, you can still change your itinerary.
Regarding Zermatt and the high altitude, we recommend consulting a doctor in case of any healt issues or for eldery people and under the age of 2. But if you have any concerns, better not to go above 2500 m.
The hiking is depending on your child, one of my boys could do a 15 km hike (with many stops) while he was 4, my younger son hates it, so we could walk just 4-5 km with him at the age of 4. Kids are different. :)
Do you have maybe a baby carrier? There are some good carriers that can be still used at age 3, but if you are not used to carrying him, it might be strange for you and for her too.
In Lucerne the Transport Museum would be great for her, I think: www.myswissalps.com/museumoftransport
Instead of going to Zermatt you can go to Interlaken it is a 2 hrs trip by train and it is also wonderful (part of the Golden Pass route): www.myswissalps.com/goldenpass/gettingthere
You can also visit the Lindt chocolate factory from Lucerne: www.myswissalps.com/activities/culinary/chocolate.

I hope you can find a good solution for your holiday,
let us know if you have further question,
