Hi Mario and welcome to MySwissAlps!
Take a look at our Zurich travel page for more details on passes for the city.
I would look into the Zurich Card for your needs in the Zurich area, especially if you plan on visiting any museums (free) or taking the local city tour (50% off). Its not available for all transit zones in the area but is valid for the airport, downtown and a couple other zones if that is all you need. Details on my link above - click on ZurichCard.
If you aren't planning on visiting museums or using any of the other extras on the ZurichCard you may find a day pass just as useful - especially the 9 o'clock pass (valid for the same zones as the Zurich card but you can only use it after 9am each day).
Regular day passes are valid any time (except after 1am) but not for the airport zone - you will have to add a zone supplement ticket to get into town. Both day passes are the same price (about 9 CHF) and can be bought at the ticket machines at almost all bus/tram stops.
For Luzern (local German spelling) take a look at our information page here. It lists activities in the area such as Pilatus, Mt. Rigi and Mt. Titlis among others. It would be a bit of a long day for any of these from Zurich but certainly doable.
I would then do a one-off purchase of a round-trip ticket to Luzern (or whichever activity you choose in the area).
