    The second question is how to draw plasma or EMP explosion effects for custom weapons? (for example, i'm goung to make plasmaball, which explodes)

    You could make it so it looks like the plasma bolt, and explodes like the plasma grenade. Cubik's item editor should allow for that.

    AFAIK, projectile explosion effect and damage radius are both hard coded in the engine, depending on weapon animation and damage type. You can't make projectile weapon that make plasma-looking explosions. Try playing with both values and test effects for yourself.
    You can work around some of this limitations by using hookscripts (change weapon damage type on the fly), but I don't know how to make plasma explosion effect this way.
