Is it necessary to uninstall the wireshark each time you try to add a new
plugin for your customised protocol?

No, a plugin can be enabled and disabled without reinstalling WS.

Or can we have 2 instances of wireshark running on the same machine ?

See the manual page of wireshark, in particular the part about plugins. If you 
have two different versions of wireshark, then you can put two different 
plugins in different directories.

Could someone help me with a basic foo plugin ?

What is your purpose? Have you read doc/README.developer already? If you are 
trying to create a dissector, I suggest to add a new protocol dissector 
instead of a plugin. Those are easier to add (but require you to build a new 
WS binary).
