Hello venkat, and thank you for your compliments! As for your question: you don't have to validate your pass yet before arriving in Geneva. It's only valid from Geneva onwards, so it's easiest to get out at the railway station there and have your pass validated at one of the ticket desks. But train personnel in the TGV may also be able to validate your pass.
As for October 30: yes, you should manage to stroll around in Lucerne and visit the Rhine falls near Schaffhausen that same afternoon. This topic
explains how to get there. Did you check the timetable
as well? It's easy for all your plans, since it will help you to find out how long your trips take and how much can be done within one day. Most combinations, such as Titlis and Hergiswil, and Pilatus and Rigi, are doable.
You can buy a return ticket for the Jungfraujoch (up one way via Lauterbrunnen and down the other way via Grindelwald) in Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald or Wengen. The Swiss Pass offers free traveling up to Wengen/Grindelwald, and a 25% discount between both towns and the Jungfraujoch. Please find all details on the map we link to from the Swiss Pass page
. Whether you can better visit the Jungfraujoch or the Trümmelbachfälle first, depends on weather conditions that day. In many cases, skies are clearer in the morning than in the afternoon, but you can best check weather forecasts the evening before (or even on the day itself, before leaving) and then decide.
I'm not sure if I understand your last question correctly, but 6 to 12 minutes generally is more than enough to switch trains.
