@Aganju's answer is spot but here is another more generic tip: Use viamichelin.com or mappy (as suggested by @Olielo). They do not seem better or worse than Google Maps to find a route, but they also provide an estimate of the tolls that seems pretty accurate (roughly matches my experience, even if I haven't done any systematic comparison). When looking at ...

Anything not going through Switzerland will be much cheaper. Switzerland sells annual toll tickets ('Märkli') only, which for a single trip easily beats any other toll.

It is completely permitted to travel between ...

You can't extend one country's type D visa in another country. However, there's nothing that says that Spain or Germany cannot issue a separate visa that commences right when your type D expires. You just have to convince them to do so, same as if you didn't have the type D visa. That may be easier said than done, though. Spain and Germany are not ...
