Train ticket and Auto query for newbie in Basel


I will relocate to Basel form Loerrach, Germany in January.

I will start a job in Zurich and until I get my drivers license will need to commute by train.

Can anyone tell me if there is a monthly ticket for fast trains that go to Zurich airport? I want to reduce the travel time and so far my journeys there have been with IR trains. Is there a faster train making the same journey between Basel SBB and Zurich airport? What is the cost of monthly ticket either for IR train of fast train if it exists?

Also, I would like to know how to register our car for driving in Switzerland. We bought the car at the beginning of 2015 in Germany and i have been told this means we wont have to pay a certain fee but how can we register so we are allowed to drive in Switzerland? My wife has EU license and when I qualify I will also have EU license. IS this recognised in Switzerland?

Finally, where do I buy a parking ticket for blue zones (our apartment has a blue zone outside).

Thank you
