When I want to add a Jquery plugin to my web site, have I to use the plugin's Javascript file & the JQuery Production or developemnt .js files. Can you guys why it is useful to use all that .js files?

You need the plugin's Javascript file(s) and either one of the development or production main jQuery files.

The difference between the development and production version is really just size - the production one has been through a Javascript minifier to make it a lot smaller, but it makes it unreadable by eye. If you don't need to look through the source of the jQuery library (and if you're just using a plugin you probably don't) then use the production version.
