Unless you have specific reasons to stay in Zurich and Geneva, I would recommend to stay in Lucerne and Montreux instead. These towns are smaller and closer to the mountains, and thus a better base for day trips. For more information about all these towns, please visit our town pages.
A Swiss Travel Pass makes sense. Possibly one of the other passes fit your plans as well, but you need a detailed travel plan (including day trips) in order to decide. This page explains exactly how it works.
Ending your trip near Lake Geneva (either Geneva, Montreux or another town) is fine as you can easily travel to Paris from there. But there are direct trains from Zurich as well, so either is ok. For tips about TGV tickets, please look here.
Hopefully the links help you out. If any questions remain, feel free to post back here!
