Welcome to the world of TeX, 

> my project is to write a tex file similar to plain.tex

your request is much too broad and complex for a simple
answer.   The best source of information about TeX is
the TeXBook by Donald Knuth.  For more information
see   http://www.tug.org/begin.html - for information
about TeX, and under Books you'll get a link to the
publisher of the best information about TeX and LaTeX.

The packages themselves are macro packages...(see
http://www.tug.org/interest.html) and their source is 
an education in itself.   You can find them
through the CTAN archives -  http://ctan.tug.org  

Good luck!
