Hi Darren, welcome to MySwissAlps!
The Swiss Transfer Ticket would be a good option for your trip. You can use it for different entry and departure towns, as explained at myswissalps.com/swisst ransferticket/howtouse, so you'd get free trips from Basel to Zermatt and from Zermatt to the Swiss-Italian border (depending on your connection to Milan this will most probably be Domodossola). If you expect to use local public transportation and cable cars during your stay in Zermatt, the Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi is even a better option, as this also allows a 50% discount on journeys between your inbound and outbound trip: http://www.myswissalps .com/swisstransfertick et/price.
If you've never skied before, you won't be able to learn this within a few days. Learning to ski takes about a week. You can of course take a few beginners' classes, but don't expect to be able to ski on your own. That wouldn't be safe for yourself and for others on the slopes. There are fun alternatives though, like snow hiking, sledging and toboggan runs. Please see www.zermatt.ch for ideas.
