Thank you for sharing your plans with us. I would not pick Eurail in this case. It does not include many of the trips on your list. Please see the below pages to compare what's covered in Eurail versus the Swiss Travel Pass:
For just two trips in France, you can simply get regular tickets: myswissalps.com/ traintickets/ france
As for Switzerland, you would need a pass for 9 days (June 21 and July 1/2 do not require a pass). However, there's just an 8- and 15-day Swiss Travel Pass. But, regular tickets for either June 22 or June 30 are more expensive than the price difference of these passes, so the 15-day pass would make sense here.
I think the 4-day Swiss Travel Pass Flex Combi will turn out to be more expensive, but you can do the math to be sure. If you decide to do the math, you can also add the Swiss Half Fare Card to your comparison. Click 'Price' on the pass pages to see the purchase options.
Regarding June 27: I'm not sure which route you have in mind, but the one I recommend is Mörel - Brig - Domodossola - Locarno - Bellinzona, then by bus to Chur. That prevents you will see the same route again the next day from the Glacier Express. It's all included in the Swiss Travel Pass. The bus may require reservations. A few trains between Domodossola and Locarno require a surcharge.
