I want to learn plugin development and, in order to make learning
interesting, I'd like to create a plugin that works like "Externalize
strings..." function, but for web pages.

The first step would be a plugin that scans an existing project in order to
make a list of files of interest (i.e. something that, when run, says "Scan
for ..." and a drop down box with extension choice (.html for example),
builds a list of them and saves somewhere.

My first question is: which kind of template should I start from?

Plugin with a property page? Plugin with a multi-page editor??

Other suggestions?

Try the one with Hello World Command ... that will allow you to execute

Then start filling in the body of your handler execute(*). It's also
worth-while to look at how Externalize Strings... itself finds relevant
