1) Here's how to create a new website on port 80: http://www.hosting.com/support/iis7/create-new-sites-in-iis-7/. Once created, you need to place your webpages in the "Physical path" location specified in step 7 (C:\websites\domain in the example provided).

2) Here's how to configure a website for HTTPS: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rakkimk/archive/2007/05/25/iis-7-how-to-configure-a-website-for-https.aspx?Redirected=true. HTTP will be setup by default, you just need to add an additional binding for HTTPS.

3) Here's how to setup redirection in IIS 7: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732969%28v=ws.10%29.aspx. Read the "Procedures" at the bottom, relevant to your situation.

When you create a new website, it will bind on port 80 for HTTP by default. You then need to add an additional binding on port 443 for HTTPS (as shown in the second article).

You don't need two separate sites, only one site with a binding on both port 80 and port 443.
