i'm having a bit of difficulties trying to understand why i shouldn't use the regular Explorer shell in my WinPE.. is ERD Commander Faster? or have more options?
What does one do, that the others don't?

You cannot really compare ERD Commander to explorer, ERD Commander is a special recovery tool adding options like password change, accessing registry and CompMgmt of any installed Windows; designed to work from cdrom.
Explorer is just the normal windows shell, eating up a lot of resources and, IMHO, just a bit overloaded for a bootcd.
Anyway, your default PE shell from pebuilder would be nu2menu.exe, ERD just runs as a shell if you choose "Full ERD logon", the tools also work with only setting the ERD target root and staying in nu2menu.
Advantages of nu2menu: Fast, reliable, easy to use in plugins.

See, i get the idea of having multiple shell's, and with PEShell, it ask's me which one i wanna load when i boot.. but i'm still lost as to why these plugin's are so freaking hard to config?
Why doesn't anyone think up a way to package their plugin's.. like a new .BART file that has all the files inside, with all the INI and INF files..?! and have a plug-in menu in Bart's PE Builder so you can import plug-in's?
Now that would be sweet..
I could program it.. that is, if some expert in plugin's could help me out..

You can easily add a plugin to pebuilder, it needs to be in MS Cabinet format (.cab).
You just put all the required files inside a \files folder and the htm, inf and nu2menu.xml files in the root of the cab.
The reason for not always including the files in all downloadable cabs are the commercial applications.
