Yeah, /usr/bin is in your PATH, but not /usr/local/bin.  (BTW, /sbin and
/usr/sbin/ should not be in your normal user's path).  So add

  export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin

to your ~/.bashrc (or whatever shell you're using).

How do you run it there?  Even when you are in /usr/local/bin, you have
to start it with ./emacs.  Have a look at this Q&A, which sounds similar
to your problem [1].  If you ask yourself why you cannot execute a
program or script in the current directory by only giving it's name,
read [2] to figure out how you can do that, but also why you don't want
to do so.
