It's indeed quite difficult to do the Golden Pass train, Château de Chillon and the Lavaux Vineyards all in one day. Especially if you're also planning to travel back to Interlaken that same night. The best way to see the vineyards is to do some hiking. Routes are listed at wanderland.ch. But as said, I wouldn't try to do it all in one day. Please see the timetable to check how much time you need for just the traveling. Personally, I would skip either the castle or the wineyards, and travel back to Interlaken via Brig - Goppenstein - Kandersteg - Spiez (another beautiful train trip).
Lockers don't need to be booked in advance. An alternative is to have your luggage transported to your final destination so that you can travel without it.
An hour on top of Mount Rigi is enough to enjoy the view. Traveling times to the top can be found in the timetable.
An 8-day Swiss Saver Pass is the best option for your trip. It's only slightly more expensive than a 5-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass, which would require additional tickets on the remaining two days. The Swiss Pass page contains your purchase options and it links to a detailed map that shows what's covered (Rigi is free, First is discounted by 50%).
