Well that explains your error messages :-) ...
An X server deals with the screen, and X windows applications, such as the
ones you're trying to run, connect to it to get their stuff displayed.
The guide to X on Cygwin may be found at https://x.cygwin.com/docs/ug/.
I also find the XLaunch program to be helpful. Maybe someone else has a
short cookbook list of things to do or can direct you to particular
sections of the guide ...
