After seeing that there is a lightning preset in VisionLab, but not Effects Lab, that's what I would like to be added to EffectsLab, a (Sith) Lightning Generator.

The lightning engine is unique to Vision lab. However there are some lightning alamDV2 plugins which are very good. Look there. biggrin

Yes, I've seen those presets, but the problem is I don't know how to import them into EffectsLab, as they're just a bunch of pictures. So if you know how, I would really appreciate that!

Search the forums for how to use AlamDV2 plugins. This topic comes up very frequently!

In short, you import the folder as an image stream. You do this by clicking... import image stream. Yes, it's that easy

You could also make a fairly descent one with Effectslab using the neon light engine, you just wouldn't get near the results.
