Hi Stanley, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
I suspect your Option 1 (Swiss Travel Pass 8 days and a point-to-point ticket from Luzern to Zürich Airport on your last day) would be the best option.
You will definitely need a Swiss Travel Pass due to the extensive travel you will be doing in several different regions, and buying more than one pass is not usually the most economic option. The longer the period of pass you buy, the lower the effective daily cost of the pass is: a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass 2nd class adult is CHF 259 (CHF 64.75 per day); for the 8-day pass it is CHF 376 (CHF 47.00 per day).
However, there is only one way to know for sure, and that is to add up the cost of all trains, buses, boats and cable cars you intend to use during you trip, and compare the cost based on each of your options.
There is a page on this site that can help you with that:
