I just downloaded the new Blackberry Plug-in for eclipse 1.3.0 along with Eclipse Helios. My question is: do I need to also download the Blackberry JDE? And if so, how do I know which version is compatible with the Blackberry Plug-in for eclipse 1.3.0?

No, Helios with Plug-in is completely self-contained and does not need the JDEs to work. There is one caveat, though - if you want to develop for BlackBerry pre-4.6, you'll need the appropriate JDE, as the Plug-in does not support older OS versions.
I wouldn't bother doing anything supporting older OS versions, but you can have a much more informed decision after looking here:

Then why is it that when on the Blackberry Java Plug-in for eclipse program when I click on Blackberry => Run As => Blackberry Simulator is not highleted as an option I can click on. Like I don't have a blackberry simulator installed on it?
