So why do a plugin?  Just write a normal new dissector.

Regardless, the doc to read is this: doc/README.dissector

That explains a lot, in detail; and of course you should also look at some existing packet-* files in epan/dissectors.  For UDP, packet-stun.c or packet-ntp.c are a relatively small ones.
