Is it possible to have my plugin show up in its own menu in the main menu bar? Instead of in the plugins menu?
If so how would I do this?

It is possible to have your own menu. Have a loop at the main.cpp of the SDK examples. In the C4DPL_BUILDMENU message you can comment out the EnhanceMainMenu() function call to show a custuom menu. Look at the content of the EnhanceMainMenu() function to see how adding a custom menu works.
Please consider though if every plugin developer has it's own custom menu the menu bar would become quickly too wide. So it's not really recommended by MAXON unless your plugin is really a large collection of tools.

Is it possible, to group several plugins in a sub menu of the plugins menu? I know, that this is done automatically if all tools are compiled together in a single lib file, but can this be done also with independent plugins?
