Having Trouble to Code Product/Plugin for vb4


I have a friend of mine that was running vBulletin 3 but now upgraded to vbulletin 4.
He has a custom for him made Plugin for vbulletin 3 that was made long time ago and now does not run in vbulletin 4 anymore.

I personally did not have written a plugin for vbulletin until now because i am more into wbb from Woltlab.
I just run a vBulletin 3 with some Plugins and Templates.

So he gave me access to his vbulletin and Plugins.
I looked at the XML File but i can not figure out how it works.

I see with the XML File there are new Templates und Hooks created BUT i cant figure out the following:

Where is defined that Hook A is loaded in File B on location C.
i want in global.php to load the hook under <?php for example how do i do that? How do i tell vbulletin that i want to do that?

Same For templates, how do i define that i want to load template a in template b on location c?

I really do not know where this is defined and how vbulletin knows when installing a plugin where to put the hooks and templates in.

Maybe someone can help me?

Have you had a look at the articles section? There's a whole bunch of tutorials for you to read.

For example:
Please note that there will be no further updates to my addons, especially they will not be upgraded for vB5. I'm leaving vB, since IB choose to go the banana-way yet again.

So i figured out i can not specify the place where i want to put code in but they are already specified by vbulletin?

So i have to watch in the files for stuff like:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

i am right?

So this principe is the same for the templates?

I thought i can modify the php and template files by using xml but now i think i understand.
