Welcome to My Swiss Alps!
This will also help:
You don't need to make reservations in advance for any rail travel within Switzerland. If you are not doing a lot of travel, you might find the half-fare card your best option, and it gives you a greater discount on the quite expensive Jungfraujoch journey than does the Swiss Travel Pass...That will be your most expensive trip from what you have described.
Reservation for the Jungfraujoch trip are not a bad idea, but there won't be a lot of crowds in January. Not really necessary. Don't book until the last minute or the night before.
You don't want to go up if the weather up top is cloudy, so buy your Jungfrau tickets on the night before or the day you travel, in Interlaken, and ask about the weather up there before you buy. Local information is the best guide.
Webcams are useful, and the weather comes in layers...could be sunny up top but not below or vice versa.
And, the weather in the Alps is very unpredictable.
