Hello Sophia, welcome to MySwissAlps!
You seem to be changing base quite a lot during your trip. Of course it can be done, but it depends on what you expect to see and do. Changing hotels means you will be spending time on packing, checking out, traveling, checking in and unpacking. So there's less time for sightseeing. On the other hand, the traveling is an attraction in itself and the views are often wonderful. So it really depends on what you expect of your stay. This also applies to visiting Geneva and/or Zurich: both cities are different, with different cultures (French versus German) so worth a visit. But if you would like to see the mountains, you won't be able to do so in cities. It's a personal choice. These tips on how to plan may be useful for you.
Many hotel tips can be found on our hotel page. Examples of a staying the night in a Yurt can be found here, and a camping with homes and caravans can be found here.
The most scenic route from Montreux to Interlaken is the Golden Pass line.
The 10% Saver discount on Swiss Pass applies regardless of where you buy. You can easily buy online though: shipping to the UK is free, and you can pay in your own currency (GBP), which may save you some money because of exchange rates. Also you can validate your pass yourself, so you don't need to spend time on that once you have arrived in Geneva. You can board your train straight away. All the purchase options are listed in the Price section of the Swiss Pass page.
I hope this was useful!
