Wiring 6 wire 3-spd exhaust blower to 120V AC

The fan is off a over range microwave. See picture below.

The yellow label on the motor caused me some confusion.

1. I am trying to wire the fan to run high speed and plug into a standard 120V/60Hz AC Outlet with a simple on/off switch. The fan will not be going back into a microwave so I will be cutting off the plug connector. Can I wire it directly to a 120V AC plug, or do I need some special power supply between the 120V outlet and the fan? If you look at the label on the motor, it has "input: 210/125/100". What does this mean? Input in my mind is 120V AC, so I am a bit confused.

2. I have added a pic of a capacitor that I have on hand. The mF do not match. Will my capacitor work fine, or do I need to get another capacitor?

3. What is the rectangle with the letters T/P on the diagram?

5. How I was thinking it should be wired, before the yellow data label confused me:

Neutral to white wire.
Hot through a toggle switch to the blue wire for high speed operation.
Orange and Red to the capacitor.
Violet and Yellow not used.

Thank you,

-Mike

Thanks for your response Max.

I will just eliminate the temperature sensor, unless, of course, it is an internal item on the motor.
