Welcome to MySwissAlps!
I have never been to the Monte Rosa Hütte, but I have done some glacier trekking. Always with a professional guide, ore at least with someone who knew the area and what to do in case of a problem. And mostly in early spring when "snow bridges" are frozen and unlikely to collapse. Websites I have consulted (see here) describe the trail as "difficult" or "very difficult", with added difficulties due to the climate change. Three hikes in mild mountain terrain is, I regret to say, by no means a sufficient prerequisite.
For experienced mountaineers, the hike takes 4 hours, one way, that is another point to take into consideration.
On the Swiss topo map. the trail to Monte Rosa Hütte is shown in blue, meaning high mountain trail for experienced hikers.
Sorry if I sound discouraging, but we don't give risky advices on this website. The moderators will jump in if they have a different opinion. (Oh, I see that in the meantime Ildiko came to the same conclusions!)
You could have less dangerous, more accessible glacier experience on short trails at Jungfraujoch or Kleinmatterhorn. Or see the glaciers from a distance by staying on the "red" trails, these are safe (under good weather conditions) and will give you unforgettable enjoyment, and you can see the glacier from a distance. One hike I have done, and can recommend, is from Arolla to Cabane des Dix.
Enjoy the Alps!
