    I don't know if a plugin can do that at all. It sounds like you want your plugins to control plugin visibility on a case by case basis, but to do that your plugins would need to be registered each with a different 'capability'. For the most part, I doubt they are, and that is not something another plugin can override-- at least I don't think so.

    You would have to rewrite the plugins, yes. Look for add_menu_page and/or add_submenu_page in the plugin source. You will need to re-edit every time you update the plugin and you will need still another plugin to manage the additional capabilities, or you cook up you own management system.
