In regard to your first question, the "configuration", TouchWiz set up will stay untouched. It's still there, just not operational.
You can test it by changing the default launcher within Nova.
Menu - Nova Settings - Select Default Home
Select TouchWiz Home (Just Once), and you can see it will not be effected.
As for the widget question, some of them are TouchWiz's native widgets, not meant to work with other launchers. Just like other features, Page Buddy, etc.
There are however, countless widgets you can use. I would personally recommend UCCW. It allows you to built your own widget, with whatever info you want, not just weather or time, but many many many other things. On top of that, there are many different weather icons you can use to load within the widget, so you can have it totally customized to your preference.
While UCCW might be a little strange at first, once you get used to it, you won't like any other widget
Here is a simple example of what I built for my screen. Very basic one, I just didn't have the time sit and make a complex one yet, but I'm working on one right now....
Here is an XDA forum, dedicated the UCCW themes.
You can also see samples made by other users, at MyColorScreen
If you need any help, do not hesitate to ask, will be happy to assist you. Believe me, it's so much more fun to built your own, then be confined to someone else's design
