Theia supports .vsix so I want to knoe is there any other format or can I make my own format for plugins. And can I install plugins from inside the editor?

I mean is it possible to create a plugin inside of theia editor
And is it important to have the yeoman code editor
Would it not work without it??

I am not 100% sure if I understand you question correctly, but you can develop a Theia pluign inside of Theia. The Yeoman template just helps you with an initial set-up, but you do not have to use it.
What exactly do you mean by "format for plugins"?

Theia follows VS Code design in this sense, i.e. we embracing cli instead of wizards. Yeoman is primary tool to scaffold the project, someone could have built the wizard to call it if he wants. I don't think we will accept in the core though.
