Next thing to consider your activity and how warm you want the pants, a cross country skier will need less insulation as they will be doing more activity.
Waterproof rating is simply how quick do the pants let in water, the higher the rating the more resistance to water , the pants needs to function to keep water out but also breath so you don’t sweat which then turns cold. This function is called Breathability and is rated as well, the higher the rating the more breathable it is..
