I don't know of anything, maybe something like Dexpot that creates "virtual desktops". But in any case this really has nothing to do with Rainmeter as such.

see i was thinking it might be as simple as making a drawer that is bigger than the screen and can scroll than mounting the actuall plugins to the drawer.
my tec knowledge is limited so i cant write it..

This may be the sort of thing you are looking for: http://lifehacker.com/306725/360desktop-is-an-unlimited-scrolling-desktop. I haven't tried it myself, but seems to roughly fit your description.
