Use hyperref or cleveref packages.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{cleveref}
\begin{document}
    \section{Test}\label{sec:test}
    \ref{sec:test}
    \nameref{sec:test}
    
    \autoref{sec:test}
    
    \cref{sec:test}
    
\end{document}

You can define a \newcommand to fit your need:

\newcommand{\myref}[1]{(see \autoref{#1}~\nameref{#1}, p.~\pageref{#1})}

  • Sure! Use \hypersetup{colorlinks=true}. See hyperref documentation. – NBur Jan 6 at 14:52
