No, it's not. That's why the developer guide is written.

Yes, check out LUA build into Wireshark.

No, currently it's not.

So, now I'm able to build a runable wireshark (1.0.0) with plugins. But these self build plugins are not running
in a normal installed wireshark environment (even 1.0.0) on the same XP.
I always get a 'couldn't load module  ...'

Is there a problem with a installed wireshark and a second one one the same computer as develop environment ?

Hope it helps,
