No. Look in apps/plugin.h for the available functions. Then look them up
in the rockbox sources to see how to use them.

Not possible. You can only run one plugin at a time.

Yes it is:

     struct mp3entry* (*mpeg_current_track)(void);

the mp3entry struct is defined in firmware/export/id3.h

Check out apps/plugins/favorites.c on how to use it.

Yes you can open it, but not for writing.
