Installing Gem as Plugin?

Is it possible to install a gem as a plugin? my host doesn't support
new gems, but I need the money gem to use any payment plugin.

You can install gems other than in the standard /usr/...locations -
Read up on the GEM_PATH and GEM_HOME environment variables.
Have a look at http://gemsonrails.rubyforge.org/ too.
