If you click to the Price tab in the first link Arno gave you, you will see an overview of all purchase options. As you can see there's no price difference between online and local purchase. But buying online makes sense. It's easy and it saves you the time of going to a ticket office, possibly waiting in line, and waiting for the passes to be issued. Just print your pass at home and you can board your first train straight upon arrival. Here's how to do it: visit www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass within 3 business days (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home.
You don't have to worry about transportation companies. If you visit Arno's link, then click "Where it's valid", you can download a map with all covered routes and towns. If a route is covered, any train is covered. Train types and companies are not relevant. All buses and trams in Lucerne are covered.
The shortest and cheapest route from Lauterbrunnen to Jungfraujoch is through Wengen. There is no need to travel back to Interlaken. A round trip via Grindelwald would be nice though, but you can also include the Kleine Scheidegg - Grindelwald section on another day. All details are on the Jungfraujoch page.
