How would I add glow to a weapon, like a lightsaber blade?

I've never messed around with shaders much, but I'd imagine you need a semi-transparent (translucent in english?) opacity map, and some sort of setting in the shader tag that enables glow.

Ur, alpha channel, from black to white, white being completely opaque, black being completely transparent, and greys representing various levels of semi-transparency.
