Hi BWise, welcome to MySwissAlps,
In many cases either a Swiss Travel Pass or a Swiss Half Fare Card works out cheaper than a Swiss Travel Pass Flex. My estimation would be that the Swiss Half Fare Card is best in your case, but the only way to know for sure is to do the math. Note that if anyone in your family is under 26, they can get the cheaper youth version of the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Travel Pass Flex.
Basel to Como is covered until Chiasso, so that's almost the whole journey. You need additional tickets from Chiasso to Como. Seat reservations are not required for most trains, please see here.
You can order the passes from www.swissrailways.com and print them yourself.
