Is that a reason why the info is different????
I'm not sure why that is. I've noticed that sometimes it seems to be off, but other times it's fine.

4- Is that a way to start weather.sh directly from kobo and not with telnet??? I saw something about this here but I have no idea how to implement (need some help).
Yes and yes. If you run the command "killall nickel" from a terminal, your Kobo will not
go to sleep. To start the weather display without telnet, install this package on your Kobo.
You can then switch between the weather display and the normal Kobo interface by pressing
the Back and Home buttons at the same time (this will stop your Kobo from sleeping as well).

The Kobo runs Linux, and most debian packages work just fine on the Kobo once you
install all the necessary dependencies, which is the hard part. I know nothing about
setting up a webserver, but it should be possible.

If it's connected to a power source, will it stay awake?
It will. Or you can use the installer I linked to above.
