Hello Vikas! Yes, you need a valid Swiss Pass
to use this Trenitalia offer. However, it may be cheaper not to use the offer and just buy a regular ticket Milano-Domodossola (which is about CHF 11 / EUR 9.12), and then use your valid Swiss Pass for the free Swiss leg of the trip up to Basel. I don't know what's included in the Trenitalia offer though, so I can't make a good comparison.
As for the 5th day: it will probably be cheaper to buy regular tickets for your trip from Basel to Zurich. For sightseeing in Zurich, the 24h ZurichCard
may be convenient.
If you start using your Swiss Pass during the inbound trip from Italy, and want to have the first 4 days covered during your actual stay in Switzerland (that is, if I understand your travel plan correctly), you can of course still consider a 5 day Swiss Flexi Pass
