Is there a way inject CSS that adds placeholder text for both the Date Picker and Dropdown widgets? What would that look like?
Thanks in advance!

Actually, you can not add placeholder values with just CSS.
I'm not sure if it is what you're looking for, but there is a workaround to add some text and position it over the input field.
I have cloned one of your forms, which you might refer to, to show the result.
Here is the code I used for Datepicker field:
Please note, that the fake placeholder needs to be positioned somewhat right, in order to avoid overlapping the picked date.
Despite all mentioned above, I encourage you to use "Show Today's Date" at DatePicker widget and "Show Text in Empty Option" at OPTIONS tab of dropdaows for placeholders of these fields.
Let us know if you need further assistance.
