Thanks for sharing your plans. September should be nice and everything will be open and operating.
Shifting hotels between Wengen and Interlaken could be a bit disruptive. You lose time packing/unpacking and checking in/out. Wengen is a beautiful place to stay. Interlaken not so much apart from being a handy transport hub.
You may well have the right pass. You probably know this already but before you can be sure which pass suits your travel plans you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity).
You might look at combining the Tell Pass with the BO or Jungfrau Travel Pass.
Seeing you are going to Schilthorn, from Lauterbrunnen a very nice circuit to do is to Grütschalp (cable car), Mürren (cogwheel train), Gimmelwald (cable car), Stechelberg (cable car), Lauterbrunnen (bus). In between Stechelberg and Lauterbrunnen the bus stops at the Trummelbach Falls. Well worth a look.
Have a great trip.
