Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software. http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/ Plugins are for WordPress.org installs only. There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes anything stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions You have to hire a web host and set up your own self hosted WordPress.org install if you want plugins.
