There is no such plugin in recent versions of strongSwan anymore. That
is, this interface it not supported anymore. Basically, our Android app
 replace it.

I don't think this was supported. The plugin was written to work with a
patch to the native VPN client  of an old Android version, which also
only supported one connection at a time.
Samsung resurrected the plugin though and uses it in the Samsung S5,
maybe they added this possibility. You can download the source code
directly from Samsung.

Yes, the daemon supports multiple IKE_SAs.
