You set that in GeneralVariables.inc

Just right-click the skin and select "Edit General Variables".

Just change TimeFormat to %H:%M or whatever you like.

Nothing, because theposted URL doesn't work anymore. You can't use the skin with this URL.
I suggest you to look for a newer weather skin, available for instance here on forum.

Finding a properly working skin is the easiest solution. To use the old skin you have, you have to entirely rewrite its code. For a beginner (which I suppose you are - sorry, hope I don't offend you) this is not an easy task, although you vcan get help with it here on forum.
So recommend to look for a skin which does look as you want. Extremely many skins are out there on the Share Your Creations section of this forum and especially on the link I posted above. I'm sure you can find something you'll like.

i recommend searching the deviantart through google for xxenium weather - they have designed several very nice looking weather skins or suites.

There are of course many others, but that one has so many well designed skins that i personally use or borrow code from as there are so many to skin-scrape from.

I hope that is not naughty to say that i use their code, but that is the rainmeter community look experiment and learn as you go.... :D
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.
