seo meta description issue in google search


This is my first time to use Yoast SEO plugin in my website, I’m trying to add meta description to every pages and every post in my website.

When I search it on google, seems like the meta description does not show at all, instead google take the content from the website page as the meta description.

When I looked at the page source, there is a content that I set in Yoast SEO as my meta description

For keywords part that I put in my SEO, when I test it in SERPs, the keywords seems does not work at all, SERPs couldn’t match the keywords that I enter with the keywords that already set in my SEO.

this is my website

I already change title tag in my page to be like this to match with the SEO

<title><?php if ( is_category() ) {
    echo 'Category Archive for &quot;'; single_cat_title(); echo '&quot; | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_tag() ) {
    echo 'Tag Archive for &quot;'; single_tag_title(); echo '&quot; | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_archive() ) {
    wp_title(''); echo ' Archive | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_search() ) {
    echo 'Search for &quot;'.wp_specialchars($s).'&quot; | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) {
    bloginfo( 'name' ); echo ' | '; bloginfo( 'description' );
}  elseif ( is_404() ) {
    echo 'Error 404 Not Found | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_single() ) {
} else {
    echo wp_title( ' | ', false, right ); bloginfo( 'name' );
} ?>

Is there any reference that can explain/help me to make the meta description work and the keywords?

Is there any settings that I need to change from the plugin section?

I also have a question for meta description template from the plugin page, do I just leave it blank or should I add some variables?
