Install the excellent free Preference Manager in both computers. Back up the first FCP installation with Preference Manager. Then find the backup file it created (in Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Digital Rebellion/Preference Manager/Backups/) and copy it to the corresponding folder in the second computer. Now run Preference Manager in the second computer to Restore those FCP preferences.

This Apple link might help you to locate where your plugins were installed.
