I don't think you would need a down jacket. A fleece jacket, a lightweight wind-and-waterproof jacket, and a scarf would be useful. You might not need a cap and gloves, but as they are small and convenient to carry, I think it's worthwhile to have them just in case.
I was on top of the Schilthorn last September, and it was very mild, even warm, and not windy. Some people were dressed in short-sleeved t-shirts and shorts. Others wore jackets. I was comfortable in a lightweight long-sleeved top and jeans.
However, you need to be ready for chilly weather at any time of the year, and the key is dressing in layers that you can put on or take off according to the conditions.
>> Any special shoes
If your only hike will be between Mürren and Gimmelwald, comfortable walking shoes would suffice.
>> Generally are there any strong, cold winds in the Bernese Oberland around September
In my experience, strong cold winds are very rare at that time of year, even at high altitudes, but you couldn't rule them out for sure.
