Hi anushrim, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Let's have a look at your questions:

1. The Swiss timetable at ble provides you with all information you need on your connections: departure and arrival times, platforum numbers, etcetera. Make sure to read the explanation on that page first.

2. I think your itinerary looks fine the way it is. It's not too rushed and perfectly doabele. There's not much I would change or add. Just make sure you have some back-up plans in case skies aren't clear enough to visit mountain tops. Further suggestions for the Lucerne region are here, for the Bernese Oberland here. As for October 10: I personally like First better as you're closer to the mountains than at Harder Kulm. But it's a longer journey from Lucerne, so you'd better leave early in the morning.

3. To be honest I'd just go with an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass as that's easier than the two regional passes. It even allows free traveling up to Pilatus and Rigi, and discounts for the cable cars in the Jungfrau region. Plus, it allows you to travel away from the Lucerne or Jungfrau region in case of bad weather.

Does this help you out?
