Hello and welcome, Tugrul. Not all plants will propagate the same way, so neither your Plumeria or your Phormium are going to respond to being planted like grapes.

The Plumeria will branch of its own accord. You just have to wait and give it good nutrition. It would be very helpful if you could complete your profile so that we will know where in the world you are growing your plants. The climate your plants grow in will dictate your fertilizing regimen. Some information about your soil and amount of rainfall will also be helpful in advising you. Or are the plants growing in pots?

The Phormium is easily propagated just by dividing the clump - that is, you dig up the clump, carefully pull it apart either with your hands or two garden forks, and plant small divisions, each with both leaves and good roots, out as new plants. You can also cut apart divisions but I think this does more damage to the roots. If you have any very small pieces left over, say only one fan of leaves, I would put those in a pot and grow in the shade for a few months to give them some help to recover. Again, fertilizing will depend upon your location.
