Hi Eric,
I can only answer the first question.  We have a list of some externally developed Chimera plugins here:


Of course, these are only the ones we know about -- probably others exist!

There are also some locally developed "experimental" plugins, but most are old and have already been added to the official version of Chimera.

Ideally it would allow the "subdivisions" property of the viewing effects apply to every element, similar to how radius applies to all atoms of the same element.
