I just have a general question about scripting, because I'm just starting with it. Can you make a script add an effect, that was made with the Pseudo Effect Maker to a layer? And in general can you make the script do stuff with other plug-ins? For example just change the values of an instance of Trapcode Particular. Thanks in advance for an answer!

Pseudo-effects behave like normal effects, but since they're based on animation presets, you'd call up the respective preset in the first place, anyway. Scripts can manipulate any visible/ accessible property, including on third-party plug-ins. In case of particular this may be a bit more limited in recent versions, though, ever since they switched to creating effects with a separate editor. Some newer stuff may not be available to scripts.
