The Weather skin of this suite is trying to use wxdata as weather information provider. But this provider has been deprecated long time ago (more precisely on 01/15/2020) and as such, it doesn't work anymore. A complete rewrite of the code of this skin would be needed, in order to can get it working. But this is a huge task. Instead of rewriting it, I better recommend you to choose a working skin available for instance here.
As for setting up a player, you have to open the Settings skin of the package (Cold\Settings\Settings.ini) and choose de desired player from the [Player] list.

Just a terminology thing: in Rainmeter those elements are not widgets, but skins.
