This will show you how to wire up the LEDS and what value resistors to use

For the switching it will be easier if you just use a separate switch for each group of LEDs then you can turn them on and off as you require.

Read the link I gave above all LED idiosyncrasies are covered/explained - You have to look round the site.

it is better for each LED to have it's own resistor.
