I will only comment on the availability of hotels on Lake Como. I know that many are closed by November (am less sure about October); assume you have checked this out already. Cannot comment on the weather since have only visited in the May-June timeframe.

I've been to Switzerland in early October and found the weather throughout (including the highest alpine areas) to be pleasant..early morning chills in some lower elevations but easy warm-ups. No bone-chilling/bitter temps were to be found. October is a wonderful time since it is much less crowded than the "high" season.

Hopefully someone here can comment about the closure of the higher road passes (although for many that means a delay long enough to load your car onto a train for a tunnel pass-through)which I suspect will still be open.
