    How do I get the little number (for new, unread emails) to appear on my Gmail icon, like Facebook, Phone and others?

    That's called "badging", and it's a function of the launcher (the app that gives you the desktop, the dock at the bottom, etc.) Since yours doesn't, you'll have to install a launcher that does. (The paid version of Nova Launcher does.)

    Are there any "good" free launchers? Why do we see 3 other icons with "badges" without a special launcher?

    Because the launcher supports those 3 apps. It doesn't support the Gmail app.

    You might want to try this app. I use nova launcher now but used to use this to get the badges with stock s7. It worked but kept crashing on occasion in my experience.
