You're welcome Baatasaari!
1. The ticket desks are above the airport train station.
2. Yes, they should be open around that time.
3. I've seen the queues but never purchased there. I'd estimate 30 minutes if it's busy, or less if it's not busy. Really hard to predict. All travelers and all passports need to be present.
Personally I would simply buy online. That way you don't miss the first available train (spend your spare time sightseeing in Zurich, Lucerne or Bern I'd say!). Also you'd have a handy backup, so you can print the pass again in case you damage or loose it. You won't have that if buying it locally in Switzerland. You will even save a bit of money if you purchase via https://www.happyrail. com/en/pass/europe/swi tzerland/swiss-travel-pass-consecutive as their prices are slightly lower and there are no additional shipping/handling fees (see here to compare). You should receive it the same or next business day, so plenty of time left for you.
Either way, enjoy your trip!
