AFAKI there is no special plugin yet for doing these things. But that
doesn't mean that you can't write one yourself. :-)

But I think that the possibilities of batch prosessing with Gimp are not
very well developed at the moment. So I would use convert of this. In
combination with find it is a very powerful tool.

Example: To create a thumbnail of every picture in a directory (every
png one), just use:
find -name "*.png" -exec convert -geometry 25%x25% {} {}.thumb.png \;

If you read 'man convert' there are many options, including drawing and
adding text to a picture.
