You can change the context that your plug-in is running in. By default
that's the user context but that's just for historical reasons. Actually
you are supposed to use gimp_context_push() before you use any methods
that alter the context.

The paint-method is not reflected anywhere in the UI. It only affects
paint operations done through the PDB.

May I ask why you want to change the tool from your plug-in? That
doesn't sound like something a plug-in should be doing and I am curious
as to why you think that it would be useful to be able to do that.
