Hi,
  Have you worked through any of the VMD tutorials yet?:
    http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/current/docs.html#tutorials

I think that you should be able to visualize all of the properties
you're interested in, using the Isosurface representation, along with
some of the standard space filling atomic structure representations.

If you have worked through the tutorials, particularly the quantum
chemistry related ones, and you still have questions, let me know.

Best,
  John Stone
