Welcome lucky3011. You definitely need a rail pass, since you'll be making quite some long and expensive transfers. I suggest you look into the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass (which is the easiest way of traveling, since all trips by regular trains, buses and boats are for free) or the Swiss Card.
As for your itinerary: if you want to visit viewing points, you should consider either Rigi or Pilatus near Lucerne. If weater is bad, visit the town centre and the Traffic Museum. That is, if you have time left after your arrival in Lucerne. Please refer to the timetable to check such details. Your trip up to the Jungfraujoch will take at least half a day, maybe a full day if you get out along the way and enjoy the views in Wengen, Grindelwald and at Kleine Scheidegg. Your last day in Interlaken could be used for a boat trip, an easy hike, a visit to the Schilthorn; it really depends on what you're interested in.
If you like scenic train trips, consider getting back to Geneva using the Golden Pass line through Zweisimmen and Montreux.
