Discourse Hosting Limits?

I am wondering if there are some caveats with the custom extensions or plugins with the Discourse hosting as opposed to self-hosting? Looking to use a single sign on that is tied back to my games login credentials.

For instance, integrating things like this

I am also wondering if it would be able to display some of the in-game stats or amount of tokens the user has in the game if I had a sign sign on (OAuth). (why I want to use this single sign on)

Official Discourse hosting only allows custom plugins on the Enterprise plan, and we have to assess the plugin code and determine whether or not a maintenance fee is required. Plugins can edit backend code, so we have to err on the side of caution when running anything custom on shared infrastructure.
