As a quick and dirty solution, you can read your stuff from text files
into locals using -file-. I believe plugins work with the data rather
than with the locals, although I've never tried to figure it out and
write something up. To me, it looks like the era of plugins was
somewhat short-lived, between their introduction in early 2000s and
opening up of Mata around 2005.
