I can't help with the translations but the symbol appears everywhere.
It's a common symbol for many things.

It reminds people they are mortal and can die at any time(particularly 500+ years ago when medicine was in it's infancy in the west).
It was used to symbolize poison, or even danger.
It reminds people of how close the other side is, most cultures had some form of afterlife and you pretty much couldn't get there while you were alive.
Artistically it's hard to differentiate between a carving of a living or dead person.
So to show the difference they would use a skull and thigh bones.

The symbol is also used in multiple cultures not just western/European.
Sometimes the skull is an animal skull(mostly shamanistic cultures) though the representation is pretty much the same.

It's not some grand conspiracy, it's just a very universal symbol that everyone recognizes.

Lets put it this way, we can't read the Latin next to it(we being all those who see these images and can't read it).
Even without reading it we realize it at least means something important and at the very least we need to pause and think.
Not everyone can read now, or back when these were carved.
If you could read maybe you read a different language.
So if someone wanted to give a warning they used a universally recognized symbol.
It tells us to take a second and think about our surroundings, whether they be dangerous or beautiful.
It just tells us to slow down and be aware of what's going on.

Not really conspiratorial.
