Will the ICE4 be running just in Switzerland or will it replace that
particular ICE1 on the entire run, be it Interlaken - Hamburg or
Interlaken - Frankfurt?
All ICE1 in international services will eventually be replaced by ICE4. The change must be done at once because seat arrangements are completely different. Otherwise it wouldn't be possible to correctly reserve seats.

All ICE1 sets will be rearranged and continue as shorter consists on less heavily trafficked lines. More details slightly off-topic in this forum. :-)

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why is a DB ICE unit (be it
ICE1 or ICE4) operating what looks like an entirely domestic Swiss
diagram?.
To reach a point to sleep where they feel at home. ;-)

One consist does Berlin - Interlaken Ost - Basel (371/336/338).
The next ICE arriving in Interlaken Ost at 21:57 (373) is stored there and goes off at 06:00 to Berlin (372).
The next one in the morining does Basel - Interlaken Ost - Berlin (333/278)

Basel Bad has some maintenance facilities for ICE.
