This can never work because the \usepackage command is a feature of  
latex, not a feature of plain tex.

Is there a good reason that you are using plain tex rather than  
latex? Most people would say that plain tex is really only for  
experts these days (and your questions indicate that you're not an  
expert). Unless you are using plain tex for compatibility reasons  
with old code or to collaborate with other people who insist on plain  
tex, you should probably switch to latex.
