Although once I've wrote a Rainmeter plugin, I'm not programming regularly, so probably I not am the best to give advices, but here is a good description on how to create Rainmeter plugins. There is a sample C++ code as well, which also can be used to figure out how to do different things. If no one has a better advice, maybe it worth take a look.

But cannot get handle (hwnd m_ToolTipHandle) to tooltips.

Hi I don't think Rainmeter has API to get that handle.
But you can use winapi to get it.

https://github.com/ozone10/Rainmeter-DarkContextMenu/blob/master/Plugin/PluginDarkContextMenu.cpp

function "GetTooltips" should give you idea how to get it.

Also, maybe looking into Rainmeter's source code a bit will help. Try here, and search for (CTRL+F) m_ToolTipHandle. Not sure how much this will help, but, well, I've got nothing else, so...
