Some plugins (far from all or even most) have an associated RDF/XML file
that describe some properties of the plugin and its parameters. I don't
know how useful they would be for GUI rendering, I have never tried
writing anything that uses them.

LADSPA plugins themselves usually don't care about GUIs at all, it's up
to the plugin host to create a GUI for the plugin.

No, sorry.
