I'm going to take the second-class seat of the Eurail Pass.

Can I make a reservation for a train that I have to take for a long time by upgrading it to the first class?

As far as I know it is not possible. Only the reverse is possible. But I am not 100% sure.

depends from Country to Country and the operating railcompanies :)

In general it´s not possible but for exampe German Rail, Swiss Rail and Austrian Rail offer travelclass upgrades (“Klassenübergang”) they cost usually the price difference between the 2nd Class Standard ticket and the 1st Class Standard ticket for the Route you are intending to take the first class. This can be in Germany and Austria quickly more than 70€ for just one journey :/ because of that i recommend to buy from begin a first class pass or look for Promotional and Saver Fares of the Railcompanies :)
