1. The RTC Agile Planning API to create plans is not supported as far as I know. It requires to use internal API.
2. Work Items do not exist in a plan. Work Items are shown by the plan. To show up in a plan they need to be in the scope of the plan, which means at least the filed against and planned for of the work item must match the owner and iteration selected in the plan.

I am getting more and more frustrated lately, having the impression answers are not read and thought about. Why should I waste time with answering when the person asking does not waste time or energy in reading the answer?

Again, the same answer as above: 
1. explains, there is a huge warning icon, the API is using internal API.
2. Before you even touch any code, learn the fundamentals of RTC e.g. understand what a plan is - it is a work item query. Based on that knowledge understand how to manually create a work item that shows up in a plan. Then use the Work Item API to create work items with the required category (Filed Against) and iteration (Planned For). 

The key is here that there are different APIs for different things.
