But I want a plugin, seems to have no way

You are right - there is no way. Discourse is not a content management system but a discussion platform. You need to set up another site for the rest of your pages.

So, as said by @tobiaseigen, it is better to host your custom webpages in your domain(, and host discourse in sub-domain(
