What would be the best way to glue plastic to glass?? I have some Epoxy but I don't know if that would hold.

Superglue needs a decent amount of contact area (it doesn't fill space well) so if the surface is "rough", porous, or a "rounded edge", it may not hold well. But then, most glues will not. A gap-filling epoxy that can be build up a bit may do it (and it will hold better if the glass can be scratched slightly) .

Depends what you're trying to do. Super-glue should work for a lot of uses.

If it's not too heavy, it should. Make sure it's supported for a few minutes as the glue dries properly.
