The PlugIns product is separate from the ZPatterns/DataSkins product.
ZPatterns requires that PlugIns be installed, though.

There's some experimental support for having Dataskins as plug-ins. However, I can't 
think of why I'd need to do that.

PlugIns and DataSkins are there for different purposes. They solve different problems.

I can't really answer that.

Generally, you create "glue" using SkinScript in both the Customizers and Specialists.

That's up to you.

The best way to develop with ZPatterns is first to think clearly about the problem 
domain you want to work in.
The classes from ZPatterns, such as Specialists, DataSkins
and Folders with Customizer Support, can help you design
and implement your application, leaving many of the
important decisions about methods of collaboration, and
about storage of attributes, until later.
