    I dont believe that you can use anything other than a 9 license with plesk 9. Although php isnt a plesk thing so it comes with the OS you use, or a third party repo like art so you can install any php version you want no matter what version of Plesk you use. I would always recomend to use the latest stable branch (5.3) since 5.2 is now old and has lots of security holes. It may be better to try and get the plugin author to make it 5.3 (and soon 6.0) compatible.

    Upgrading PHP

    As Amin mentioned, you can't use your plesk 10 licence on Plesk 9. However the reverse might be true (since your licence would be upgraded or converted to Plesk 10 version)

    About upgrading php, its pretty easy on any plesk version. You can just run the commands:

    wget -q -O - http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic.sh | sh
    yum update php
