I like to create something like your and I've mullet's too. So I'm looking for something with the date, time, weather and cpu temp, load. Hard drives. And I want to make it look just like fonts and numbers on the desktop.

The standard rainmeter profiles will work fine for you and there are many to choose from.

Heck the default one looks pretty sweet, with a little bar at the bottom of the screen with various bits of information

Also, DeviantArt has a number of "gadgets" for you

If you like a font, install it and edit the gadget to use that font. That's all I did, along with some modifications to the code and positions and behavior. Nothing major.
