I have a series of effects on an adjustment layer with expressions and stuff to make it controllable for making my own RGB Twitch effect, I need to make 3 adjustment layers and change a setting on each in for it to work, is there anyway I can convert all of these adjustment layers into a single plugin which is only needed on 1 adjustment layer to make it easier?

Also I have another effect that requires an adjustment layer attached to it as a Luma Matte and add adjustments onto that, is there anyway I can do the same thing and turn this into a plugin with parts that apply certain adjustment layers to it?

Though you have a few options for how to set this up, I'd suggest that you put all the controls on a single layer; use the pickwhip to link back to this one controller layer. You can set the rest of the layers as shy in your comp if you don't want to see them.
