1) The Golden Pass is mostly a route, not so much a train. There are indeed a couple of "special" trains on the Montreux to Zweisimmen section, but you won't have to choose between train types. Only one will depart at the time, either a "regular" one or one that happens to be a bit more special (larger windows for example). Changes are easy as the stations are very small. There are no long waiting times. Trains connect within minutes usually. You will need to change in Zweisimmen and Interlaken Ost. Sometimes in Spiez too.
2) You don't need to buy anything else. Please see myswissalps.com/ goldenpass for all details about the route, optional reservations and more.
3) No, the Golden Pass line is the obvious most scenic route. It might be a bit faster via Bern, but less scenic and you still need to change trains just as many times (twice).
Enjoy this beautiful ride!
