Yes, you can travel to Zurich from Rome (via Milan). Note though that trains now travel through the Gotthard tunnel (world's longest) so you will miss a lot of scenery. The other option is to take the Gotthard Panorama Express train, which can take you from Bellinzona to Luzern and then switch to a regional train to Zurich. So this route option would be: Rome - Milan - Bellinzona - Luzern - Switzerland (3 trains total).
No worries about geography issues! Note that Google Maps is very useful to give you an idea of where you are going (it always gives you the fastest routes though).
