Welcome to MySwissAlps, I'm glad you like our website!
1. You can book it on DB (bahn.com) but there are other option too, all listed here. There's a good chance DB will be the cheapest but you will have to compare for your travel date and time to be sure. Note that if you decide to buy a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass, you only need a ticket to the Swiss border. The rest is covered by the pass. The border is mostly Basel or Schaffhausen, depending on your route.
2. The ferry is discounted (50%) in both cases. Please find coverage maps at:
3. Splitting tickets is not needed. Jungfraujoch basically is a train station like all others, so you can simply buy a ticket from Bern straight to Jungfraujoch. If you have a Swiss Travel Pass most of the ride is free, but even then you can buy the additional ticket in Bern. Just show your pass and they'll get you the discounted ticket.
4. I think you either need a Swiss Half Fare Card or a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass. In both cases you can use it for your incoming and outgoing trips too. Doing the math is the only way to tell which option is cheaper. I think the Swiss Half Fare Card might be cheaper here, but the Swiss Travel Pass is more convenient as it does not require you to buy tickets, except on routes that are only discounted.
I hope there's no more need to pull your hair out?
