You can try that manually, try difference blending mode to align two layer, if the resultant is black then it is properly aligned. change the blending more to normal use eraser to remove things for upper layer & flatten. Try with all layers. that's all I can suggest. And yes, under current architecture of paint.net any effect works only on selected layer.

About the one where plug-ins only work on one layer, are you sure about that?

 

It's definitely true that plugins can only modify or even "see" the active layer. There's no way for plugins to access the data on any other layer. Plugins can also use the clipboard, but that wouldn't help for a median plugin, which needs at least three simultaneous images. A plugin could be written to do the median from file images (as the example shown appears to do). I don't think a file-based version seems useful enough to be worth the considerable effort it would take to write, but maybe someone else might.

But if several photos are placed in the same image then a plugin could have access to them but it would have to be a very large image to have good quality. I am not a programmer so It may not be true what I just wrote.

No, it doesn't work like that. Plugins only get to access the active layer.
