Jack:
You can make you own additions as in the following example.
You might put the extensions in a package (MoreHelp` ?) and put  
this into your init file for automatic loading at the start of each  
session.

Unprotect[Plot];

Make your additions.

Plot::usage = StringJoin[Plot::usage;, "\nMy additions"];

Here they are

?Plot
Plot[f, {x, xmin, xmax}] generates a plot of f as a function of x  
from xmin to xmax. Plot[{f1, f2, ...}, {x, xmin, xmax}] plots  
several
functions fi.
My additions

Protect[Plot]
