    I want a widget to able to select a style sheet from a Document & Files Library. But if if I use
     @Html.SfPlaceHolder("CSSPlaceHolder") with the <head> and </head> element of the template it does
    not show while editing the page.

    Are there any alternatives to getting something in the head element ?

    You can easily add new styles in page head with this code inside your controller:

    var page = this.GetHttpContext().CurrentHandler.GetPageHandler();
    page.Header.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(something));

    If you still have problem, you can check source code of built-in stylesheet widget in sitefinity  https://github.com/Sitefinity/feather-widgets/blob/master/Telerik.Sitefinity.Frontend.InlineClientAssets/Mvc/Controllers/StyleSheetController.cs

    The placeholders defined with @HTML.SfPlaceHolder are intended for dragging widgets from the UI. 

    If you want to register assets at specific places you need sections and the @Html.Stylesheet helper method. Please refer to  the corresponding doc article for more details.
