Hi Sy, welcome to MySwissAlps.com!
You got all of that right. The Swiss Travel Pass covers you to Basel Bad Bf (see the map), so no ticket required. You need a ticket from there to Freiburg. You can go to www.bahn.com//i/view/G BR/en/index.shtml, enter your trip and pick a ticket and train. Most trains allow you to optionally include a seat reservation. If you miss that train, your ticket is still valid for the next one, but the seat reservation isn't. The only exception would be a ticket that explicitly states it is only valid for one train, but I don't think they sell such tickets for Germany. You don't need to get off the train in Basel.
