Hello again

OK, let's help you

1. install lxappearance
2. install breeze-cursor-theme (find another one if you want)
3. open lxappearance (press alt esc to quick launcher and start typing lxapp...)
4. go to cursor tab
5. choose the theme and apply
6. reset Moksha desktop with ctrl alt end
7. send me some money

I think, you should let it have unpacked and in folder placed in /usr/share/icons. Then you should see it in lxappearance

in addition, when I try to apply other Widget theme it works only for lxappearance window and don't save current settings.

No problem here

Downloaded theme, unpacked it and copied to /usr/share/icons
Restart lxappearance and voila...

ok, I installed some themes with make;make install

but when I set and apply it it doesn't keep the theme. I restated whole OS and old theme applied.

very strange. I applied new cursor theme and reseted Moksha. Now I see new cursor if I move mouse above lxappearance window!. When I move mouse to other screen and back I see old cursor again!

OK, I was able to reproduce your issue

An easy solution:
Just logout and login back to Moksha
