I have used plume sim in Player/Stage - now I want to use it in ROS. However, I am not able to get much of a clue about installing it and using it.

The documentation: points you at the repository for the ROS version of plumesim:

Both of these link are broken now. Are there any updated repositories or wiki pages?

Apparently jmerdich/isr-uc-ros-pkg/stacks/simulator_plumesim is a googlecode export of the package mentioned by @tfoote. Can't comment on its state though, and appears to be a rosbuild pkg still.

I am fairly new to ROS, so I am sorry if this is a dumb question, but would I be able to use this package on ROS indigo or jade if it is a rosbuild pkg?

rosbuild pkgs can be build on recent ROS releases, yes. But it could very well be that the code itself does no longer compile on Indigo or Jade.
