Leaffooted Bug (Coreidae)
Yes, I believe that it is one of the Leaffooted Bugs (Coreidae).
Probably genus Leptoglossus http://bugguide.net/node/view/245/bgpage
I think that the bar on the back would then lead to Leptoglossus phyllopus
I don't know how to determine gender.

 
Gender.
You can't determine gender without a ventral (underside) view of the tip of the abdomen. Males have a swollen, capsule-like appearance to the last ventral abdominal segment I believe.
