How do I create a plugin, say, a tyranosaurus rex, which can then be transported to Visionlab Pro, and then animated? Thank's out to anyone who answers.

You cannot. Plug-ins such as you are thinking of (the AlamDV plug-ins) are an antiquated form of stock footage for an obsolete program. The plug-in structure was just a wrapper for a bit of stock footage. The old plug-ins can be used within VisionLab as stock footage, but I don't think 'How can I create stock footage of a t-rex?" is your question. If it is, then the answer is either A: make a model and use stop-motion animation, or B: use a 3d computer animation program. A is far and away the easier of these two methods.

Don't forget C: Locate a mosquito trapped in amber that contains dino DNA, splice it with frog DNA and create a whole new breed of dinosaurs.
