Hi Njbudd and welcome to MySwissAlps!
You can find details about the Golden Pass route here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/goldenpass
There are links to reservations if you want to make them, as well as a route description and sitting preferences.
Note not all trips in the Bernese Alps are by cable car - there are trains too. Either way the form of transport doesn't matter, only the route itself. You'll need to look through various rail pass options and see what routes are covered fully or partially.
To know which rail pass is the best for your specific itinerary you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :)
The Swiss Half Fare Card may be a good option, you may also want to combine it with the Regional Pass - Bernese Oberland or the Jungfrau Travel Pass as well. Or for a slightly simpler option, the Swiss Travel Pass.
You can plan our your trips with the Swiss railways timetable: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable
