If I have a plot plan, can I draw my addition on it?

No. You must submit the unaltered plot plan along with a separate plan drawn to scale showing the location of the proposed addition. This can generally be done by the homeowner or architect. However, if there is doubt as to the location and conformance with setback requirements, a certified plot plan showing the proposed structure will be required.
