    In itunes do a backup of your current iphone. Then plug in the new phone and hit restore from backup. Select the backup you performed earlier. Few minutes later and done!

    Itunes will sync your library with the new iphone

    ok i thought that too but i just needed to hear it from someone.

    also, my new iphone is unlocked and jailbroken.since this is the first time that i would be syncing it with my itunes, should i sync and unlock/jailbreak it with my own itunes? and then shift restore it with the backup from my old phone?

    No, you shouldn't need to do that. Just restore it from the backup of your old iphone.
