Is Kibana a site or native(java) plugin?

What kind of plugin is Kibana - site or java plugin?
How does the request route through when we try to access Kibana from browser using _plugin/kibana url.

I'm not sure I understand. Kibana is an application you run, just like Elasticsearch.

Does that help?

What is the difference then in accessing kibana using localhost:5601 (running as separate application) vs localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana (elasticsearch endpoint)

Kibana is a stand alone server so there is no _plugin/kibana endpoint in Elasticsearch.
