  2. In your gmail web page, go to Settings (in the top right) then select the Labs tab, and you'll find the extra emoji enable/disbale toggle in there (as well as many other useful lab features.)

    Just click on the link to the lab section in the article.
    Then scroll down through the options until you get to the "extra emoji", and enable it.

    Then scroll to the bottom or top of the page and click "save settings".

    And it's done.

  16. For musical symbols, you can just do alt+13 or alt+14: ♪♫, but on a laptop, do fn+alt+13 or 14.
