    I want to take in the existing session username and login the user based on that. Will this plugin help keep the old session data alive and any help/tips would be appreciated.

    This plugin is meant to be a replacement for using $_SESSION in PHP. Since WordPress doesn't natively use sessions for user authentication, no, this plugin won't help log in the user with an "existing session." You'll need to write your own authentication routines to work with sessions in addition to what WordPress already does.
