Having difficulty finding your phone's alarm and enabling email notifications? I am glad to help. I use these features daily, as well.
The alarm on your DROID Incredible 2 is a feature within the "Clock" application. I'm including a link to the device manual that lists the instructions for setting an alarm. They are found starting on page 179.
As far as your email notifications, this would depend on how your email accounts are setup. If you are using the Google/Gmail email account you can enable & change the email notifications by going into the Gmail account settings. These instructions are found on page 148 of the device manual. Now if you are using another POP3/IMAP or Exchange email account, the notification settings are within the "Mail" application. The instructions for enabling & changing these notification settings are found on page 160 of the device manual.
I hope I have answered your questions, and have addressed your concerns.
