I don't understand why they don't do this with a wagon on every commuter train, it would probably increase their profits and result in a lower amount of complaints.

They are commonly on long distance intercity trains. Amtrak's North East Regional service between Washington D.C. and NY/Boston will usually have the so called cafe car on it. The Acelas have one too but have more full meals IIRC.

The MTA, for example, is not in the restaurant business and might be unfit to handle such operations. Outsourcing to 3rd parties could be costly and inefficient too.

heavy rail full-service dining cars are enough of a pain in the ass to run & staff that they generally don't make money. long distance trains only have them as a necessary part of keeping their passengers alive for 12+ hour trips. it's easy enough for commuters to just grab something at a station.

bar cars used to be common in the NYC area for commuters, but the MTA just retired the last of theirs because the MTA is dumb.

Why not a bar in all major stations

Passengers here certainly wouldn't.
We had cafe cars on some of the interurban tram lines, but they weren't successful.

Probably because most stations have a bakery or supermarket nearby anyway.

they have one in rome. It's just a restaurant on wheels, you do it as a meal thing, not for the ride.

UK Virgin Trains trains have cafe areas in 1/3rd of a carriage, while other HSR trains here have food carts they bring through.
First class has it's own restaurant kitchen where you can order from though.
