These are all good ways to accomplish what you're talking about. Although for me EQ'ing has more to do with the tone than making something stand out. For me usually a bit of panning works well along with leveling. I have to use a different tone between rythm and leads even if it means adding a bit of overdrive from a pedal or something. If you don't change up the tone a little it just blends with the rythm and to me it sounds like I just changed up the chords or something.
