My question is how to add a widget to my page, not a capsule. On Amazon's page it shows that you can
On Amazon's site it shows that you can add widgets, such as an MP3 player, access to YouTube, etc. I have an affiliate account, so I have that under control. When you go to the Amazon site, it invites you to put widgets on your page. Some of the sites such as blogger.com and others are defaulted, so all you have to do is click and the widget is added to your page over there, but there is no button for hubpages.
It's not possible, though it's so sad.
These scripts could easily be verified as coming from Amazon.com and not someplace else.
I guess that's just laziness
It depends on what kind of widget you are talking about. If you mean an Amazon widget to promote items through the associates account, then there is another way to do the same thing.
Just add an Amazon capsule after you have gotten a code from them and you can either add items to that capsule by using either key words or by specifically choosing links that will be embedded in the capsule, which means also in the article.
If you are trying to add say an outside widget from a site, for example like Bukisa, to back link your other articles or blogs then that is not possible.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

Last night I couldn't get an amazon capsule to appear in my new hub. I kept getting a message that says "Something went wrong..." I need this capsule to show the product I am talking about in my hub.
