Hi rswiss. Yes, you can make the Chocolate Train trip when returning to Geneva. Please check the timetable though, as the Chocolate Train doesn't run on all days (you can use the link I provided above). The Golden Pass train is covered by the Swiss Flexi Pass, so the ride itself is for free if you use a free travel day (if not, a 50% discount applies). Please take a look at the Swiss Flexi Pass page
and click the link 'Overview of the network on which the Swiss Flexi Pass is valid'. You do need separate seat reservations though.
In all, a Swiss Half Fare Card may be a bit cheaper, but you should make some calculations
to know for sure.
Boat rides can be made on lake Thun and lake Brienz near Interlaken. The BLS website
provides more information. It's not wise to go up to the Jungfraujoch and Titlis in rainy, cloudy weather. That's a waste of your money, as it's all about the views. There are lots of bad weather alternatives, such as the Traffic Museum in Lucerne, boat rides, train rides, the Trümmelbach falls, the Aare gorge, the Beatus caves, and so on. More information on these activities is listed in the day trip overview I mentioned.
I hope you'll have a great trip, and that the weather turns out to be not that bad after all!
