Assuming I understand your question, this should not be too difficult. Here you go:

In your plugin Lua file (which you should make sure Wireshark loads), start by adding a function which does the job your plugin should do:

local function runPlugin()
    --here your plugin does it's thing
end

Then you register the runPlugin function to be launched from the wireshark toolbar:

register_menu("Lua/Launch my plugin", launhing_function, MENU_TOOLS_UNSORTED);

Now when you open Wireshark and click on Tools > Lua > Launch my plugin the runPlugin() function is called.

Hope this helps!
