As regards prophets - Prophets are individuals sent by a deity to convey a message or mission. Buddhism has no deity, hence no prophets. Buddhism is a nonprofit organization. As regards leaders - Buddhism is not unified as a one stream organization, It is divides into several major streams and numerous sects. Like Christians, there is no one living leader that speak for all believers. There are several leaders such as the Dalai Lama who are both well known and are leaders of sects, but they have no control or leadership over Buddhism in general. As to "important " leaders, each group regards their leader as important.

Hinduism and Buddhism
One famous leader in Buddhism is the 14th Dalai Lama, who is arguably the best known Buddhist leader, and figure in the world.
Buddhism is made up of a wide range of different traditions and schools, each of which has its own spirtual leader. However the Dalai Lama is seen by many as being the 'public face' of Buddhism.
The religious leaders in Buddhism at present-day are the monks, nuns, and novices (collectively known as the Sangha, meaning those who follow unitedly the teachings of the Buddha).
Except that all Buddhists trace their beliefs back to Buddha there is no one leader of "World Buddhism" any more than there is one leader of "World Christianity". Each sect and division has its own leader (e.g. The Dalai Lama is a high lama in the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism)Answer:The leaders of Buddhism are the teachings of the Buddha and the disciples of the Buddha, those who follow exactly and faithfully these teachings in a united manner.So, if you follow exactly the teachings of the Buddha, then you are one of the leaders of the Buddhism.
There is no leader in Buddhism. Buddhists pay homage to the Buddha, his teaching (the Dhamma) and his deciples(the Sangha).
Generally, in Buddhism, the question of a deity is irrelevant - so many do not consider it to be a religion, per se, moreover it is a philosophy. A way to live our lives & strengthen of minds. That being said, our leaders are our Teachers. Being Dharma Instructors or Zen Masters. Often people believe that His Holiness the Dali Lama is the leader of Buddhism. This is an inaccurate statement, as he is the leader-in-exile of Tibet & of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, not all Tibetan Buddhism. . Often believed to be the reincarnation of Avalokiteshavara - the Bodhisattva of compassion. This makes Buddhism similar to Judaism, Islam and Christianity where there is no singe leader, just leaders of sects and groups.
The term Rimpoche is used in Tibetan Buddhism for someone who is the reincarnation of a known lama. A lama is a man who has taken vows to pursue the Dharma. There are many types and levels of lamas.
Tibetan Buddhism is Buddhism practiced in Tibet and the Himalayan region. There are many sects (Nyingma, Kagyü, Sakya and Gelu) each with their own leader and no overall leader. The current leader of the Gelug school, the newest of the schools of Tibetan Buddhism is the 14th Dalai Lama. He is perhaps the best known of these leaders.
