display important unread emails in gmail

I would like to be able to click on the IMPORTANT label to display gmail’s important emails, then be able to display just the unread emails containing that label. I’m new to eM, so I apologize if this has been covered before. Also, just a suggestion, it would be nice to be able to create a custom view, say one click to display important and unread emails, or a with a set of display rules you would like. Thanks for your help.
