Update to the latest firmware (either by using pccompanion or flashing a FTF from the mega collection thread in the general section) then just use any of the new root tools. Look in my signature for help

As for sim unlocking, you will have to go to your carrier and ask them for that or pay a third party company for the code. Sim unlocking is not really what we do here on xda.

If you are unsure, then read this.
If you are still unsure, watch this.

Flash a ftf file from the mega collection that is 4.4.4 then just root it
