The problem is the pygame developers have not released a pygame for
Python 3.9 and you're using Python 3.9.
You can check the availability here:
Easiest answer is to stick with Python 3.8.6 for now.
Slightly longer: all those daunting error messages are because pip
didn't find a wheel file matching your python version / operating system
/ architecture, and thus wants to instead download the source
distribution and build it (that's the pygame\\setup.py). And that fails,
as it normally does for Windows users.
