In the app drawer, long press the app and you can add it to you homescreen. For widgets their is a separate tab in the app drawer that lists all of your widgets.

For me, when I open the apps drawer at the top there is Apps, Widgets, and the link to the Play market. I am on a GNex so I have stock ICS. I am not sure if it is different any of the carrier skins. Which device are you using.

Face unlock - It isn't secure and they do not want a false sence of security on their devices. Other companies are doing the same.
