finally my plugin works fine. But the description files are no eye candy, cause i can't find flags in the SDK to layout my descriptions. The dialogflags [SIZE] [SCALE_V] [FIT_V] don't work here. Are there flags like these for the descriptions i can use here?

Welcome to one of the oddities of the C4D SDK. Dialogs and Descriptions are basically two different GUI interfaces - there is no real correlation between them.
The Description interface provides even less element control and variation than Dialogs. Description files provide a minimum layout structure (tabs, groups, and group columns). In the SDK documentation, do an Index for "Description" (class Description) and you'll see what can be set for a description element through a BaseContainer programmatically - there are many more options than the resource provides including DESC_SCALEH, DESC_ALIGNLEFT, and DESC_FITH. Many of these DESC_ settings correlate to some of the resource settings (e.g.: COLUMNS = DESC_COLUMNS).
As you'll note, there is no vertical layout control whatsoever for Descriptions.
