At that time of year, there is only one Bernina Express daily, from Chur to Tirano, departing Chur at 8:32.
Starting in St Moritz, you need to take a local train to connect with the Bernina Express at Pontresina at 10:22, arriving Tirano at 12:49.
You then have a bit of a wait for the Bernina Express bus, which leaves Tirano at 14:20.
If the timetable search for St Moritz-Lugano isn't bringing up a connection with the Bernina Express train, that is probably because it's always trying to get you somewhere as quickly as possible by default, and assumes you don't want to wait around in Tirano for the bus. It will therefore suggest a later train to reduce the connection time at Tirano, but that later train will not be the Bernina Express, just a regional train.
If you do the bookings separately: Bernina Express Pontresina to Tirano departing 10:22, Tirano to Lugano on the Bernina Express bus departing 14:20 that should do it. I would start with the bus, then the Bernina Express. The train from St Moritz to Pontresina won't be able to be reserved.
