You can really only accomplish this currently with an addon. Check out AEL. It can do what you're looking to do.

I hope i can help you, test "Titan-Mod", a gaming support was added by @chrisism under Kodi 18.
Unfortunately, i can not test it because, i do not use it.
NetFilx Similar views can be set.

Yes, IAGL works with different skins as well (I thought you were interested in a local library). Widgets work just fine as well for both AEL and IAGL. I personally use Aura and like the widget options it has.

No local roms yet, but that's no problem. I Just tested iagl and i very like the retro games. So i want to do more in kodi with retro games
