The plugin should appear in the plugins selector dialog. You don't need to restart aMSN.

To install a skin just download it, and extract the files for the .zip file (.zip, .tar.gz, or similar). Then copy the extracted skin folder to one of the following locations:

 c:\Program Files\Amsn\scripts\Skins

/usr/share/amsn/plugins
$HOME/.amsn/plugins
