It's Software. Apple believes the poor performance, buggy nature and terrible battery life make it worthless on mobile platforms. Adobe just killed mobile Flash, so apparently they agree

Does it means third party browser can easily put flash plug in in their app?

Flash is an Adobe software product that brought hardware to its knees.

You don't want it.

If it could be (regardless of being 'easily done') it would have obviously been done. So, to answer your question: no.

Not exactly. While technically feasible, the restrictions Apple puts on app store submissions makes it impossible for a developer to include it in their app. Now that said there are a few browsers which get around these restrictions by running flash on a remote server rather than the device itself.

I always wondered why Flash never appeared on Cydia if it was such a highly desired product on iOS
