The stuff on the index.php page (or Forum page) are not widgets, they are simply called blocks (as they do not use the widgets from the cms). Do this to turn them on:
vboptions > forum sidebar > set those to what you want
forums & mods > forum blocks > add the blocks you want

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Is it possible to get more forum blocks in the menu options?

Right now, there are just the seven types of blocks available.

Sorry, I don't understand the question. I think most blocks are styled like the one in the picture.

Lynne, do you think that in the future IB is going to merge forum blocks and widgets (I hope) so that there is one thing to deal with?

I know they have talked about it, however I have no idea if they have actually done anything about it.
