That's right. The type determines the root installation directory. You can choose the type of a package and optionally override it per-file (so, if you want it to be displayed as such, you could make a "Script" package install some "extension" files in UserPlugins).

Only extension plugins require a restart. REAPER detects newly added JSFX automatically.

e.g. could I add ini-files as well, that are stored in the RessourcesFolder?
ReaPack packages can currently write files into the AutomationItems, ColorThemes, Data, Effects, LangPack, MIDINoteNames, ProjectTemplates, reaper_www_root, Scripts, TrackTemplates and UserPlugins directories. Writing directly to the resource directory is not allowed (unsafe, especially considering many users choose to install everything).

I'm not sure how well externally overwriting an .ini while REAPER is running would work as some settings are kept in memory...
