Do the Layton games have a story?

I'm pretty sure they do. I remember briefly playing the first one on the DS.

I'd like to grab the new one but...too lazy to play the others (as good as they are).

Which one is it? Or how important is it rather?

Sure, they're not anything special but they have a story. I wouldn't play them for that reason though.

Very story-oriented. The story frames the puzzles, but ultimately stands on its own. The puzzles are more just meat for the game.

Story-wise, the first three games are their own trilogy, while the latest two are two parts of a prequel trilogy.

If it's worth anything, I nearly cried at the end of Unwound Future.

Can I play Miracle Mask without the others or?

I remember the puzzles being insanely fun to solve.

Even though I say "trilogy", you can ultimately play them on their own. I gave Diabolical Box a try after being distracted away from Curious Village several months prior, and beyond wondering who a couple of characters were, the story was very good on its own.

I think you should be able to, if you feel like you need the background a quick look up on the internet can pretty much cover everything. I really play for the puzzles as well so I think you should be satisfied there.

The first three games have a recurring villain and characters, but other than that, their stories weren't that connected. The first two in the prequel trilogy are slightly more connected as there's hints of an overarching plot building up to the third game, but the main story can still be enjoyed on its own for both games.
