That shouldn't happen, except if you cause KDevelop to crash and then NOT tell it to preserve the cache when restarting. Or if you somehow open the same session in different versions (an older one from your distro and a more recent AppImage version for instance).

That should be possible, but you'd have to patch the ctags plugin json or .desktop file to declare itself as a kdevelop plugin too, I think (it should show something like `X-KDE-ServiceTypes=KTextEditor/Plugin,KDevelop/Plugin`).
Note however that you will probably NOT see the plugin's settings dialog in KDevelop so you'd have to configure it via Kate.
