Hello kpjune13, thanks for posting here!
Your plans do involve some long trains transfers, and you'll spend quite some time checking in and out of hotels due to your shifts of base towns. If your main goal is to see as much of Switzerland as possible, that's just fine. If you prefer a more relaxed travel pace instead, I'd advise to stick to just one or two regions/base towns instead, like Lucerne and Interlaken. You could even make a day trip to Zermatt from Interlaken. Another advantage of staying longer in one region is that it increases the chances of good weather for a visit to a specific mountain top. But these are all very personal choices of course. As said, if you want to visit all towns and regions you've listed now, your travel scheme is certainly doable. The timetable will help you check details on each journey.
If you travel from Lucerne to Interlaken and from Interlaken to Montreux/Geneva, consider the scenic Golden Pass route.
Please refer to the "What to do" sections of the pages I linked to for tips on day trips and activities. The "Hotels" sections provide tips for hotels close to the rail stations. These pages may also help you to decide which attractions are your top priority, and thus how many nights you'd like to spend in each town. Note that the end of March is low season, so not all cable cars and mountain trains are operational. The major ones (like Pilatus, Rigi, Titlis, Schilthorn, Jungfraujoch, etc) are accessible though.
Mind to look into rail passes once you've decided on your travel plans. For your current itinerary, I'd advise an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass. Which option is most economical depends on the details of your finalized journey. You can find out following these guidelines.
