Be careful when selecting the correct rail pass on bahn.de (or other websites). I believe you have a Swiss Travel Pass and not a SwissPass (different products). The Swiss Travel Pass doesn't get you any discounts in Germany.
A connection time of less than 7/8 minutes is probably fine at St. Margrethen - 30 is annoyingly long. haha :). I'm not sure what I would do there for a few hours, I've never been. Their tourism site is in German and doesn't list much. If you really have several hours I'd pop over to St. Gallen I think.
On the SBB timetable I would take the 07:02 - 10:12 train from Pontresina to St. Margrethen (free with your Swiss Travel Pass). Then on bahn.de I'd buy a ticket for the 10:42 departure to Füssen, getting you there at 14:55. That is as early as you can do. It is currently 44 Euro (I see a low of 19.90 and a high of 50 Euro on random searches).
So it isn't a super amazing price but you can search around and wait to see what else you can find if you want. It depends on how fun this process is for you - it can be fun trying to find the best price and it can be frustrating! If you find something under 30 or 35 I'd grab it.
