Thank you for posting your query.
You should lead an active life and do a lot of regular exercises, including running, walking, swimming, cycling, etc. Avoid fatty and oily food.

How much is your weight and height?
You can always get translators to talk to your Doctor and most of them understand English well.
There are no medicines which can slowdown your metabolism unless you undergo all the necessary tests.
TO gain weight - you need a good diet and all the medicines which male can take are not to be taken by females as they can have an adverse effect on your feminity
