Sort of new to UI design. From intuition it seems that the top-left corner is the "most important" or easiest seen part of the screen and the lower-right is the "least important" or last seen part of the screen. (correct me if I'm wrong). But what about upper-right and lower left? To which corners would you assign higher importance?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Readers of web pages follow an F pattern when scanning a webpage. Mostly we are conditioned into thinking where a particular UI element would be. For example, a Sign In/ Sign Up link should be in the upper right corner, rather than lower left, based on where I expect it to be.
UI designers do well to differentiate themselves through doing the unexpected, just not in this way.
