With a Swiss Travel Pass there's nothing else to buy, the ride is fully covered. Seat reservations are optional (myswissalps.com/golden pass/tickets). Whichever train you take, you can always jump on and off as you please. Unless you have seat reservations, as these are for one specific train. If you jump off, the reservation won't be valid for the next one. But again, they're optional.
Lugano to Zermatt via Milan is an option, but there are more scenic and cheaper ways to get there as not all of that route is included in the Swiss Travel Pass. For example:
- Lugano - Locarno - Domodossola - Brig - Zermatt. This includes the Centovalli railway. Very nice, only requires a small surcharge to be paid on board.
- Lugano - Andermatt - Brig - Zermatt (part of the Gotthard Panorama Express and Glacier Express routes). All included, unless you actually take the Express trains instead of the normal ones. The Express trains require reservations.
