    The HTC widgets are for Sense.

    If you use GDE, Panda, Ahome or any other home replacement you will not get the Sense widgets because you are not running Sense.

    but is there a way to actually get the sense ui on your phone. example: i'm running a samsung captivate but is there a rom i can get the sense ui on my phone?

    Only by using custom roms. And only if somebody has taken the time to port over HTC Sense.

    You should ask in the Captivate rooting section for advice. Or, have a look at your phone's XDA page. XDA forums is where all the rom developers put all their work :)
