If you're leaving next week, it's indeed a bit late to arrange for your rail pass and have it sent to your home address in time. The Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi is not for sale in Switzerland and has to be ordered in advance. Most resellers don't offer this pass as an e-ticket yet, but you can order it through Swissrailways and collect it at Zurich Airport. That's your best option. They also ship to the United States within 5 days, but I don't know if that's quick enough for you. You can either order a 1st class Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi or a 2nd class variant. That determines in which class you can travel.
Seats for Zurich to Wengen don't have to be reserved, and it's not even possible for the last leg to Wengen. If you want to do so, you can make reservations as far as Bern or Interlaken Ost (depending on your exact connection). Most international trains crossing the Swiss-Italian border do require seat reservations. More information about this is at http://www.myswissalps .com/train/reservation s.
You can pre-order your tickets Domodossola-Milan through the link I gave you in my previous post: http://www.myswissalps .com/traintickets/ital y. Just click the 'Price' section to see the options. Alternatively, you can arrange for your ticket at any manned Swiss railway station before boarding.
