So far, I'm only able to instal flash dockable panel(s) through manifest.xml but they are thrown in special submenu and act as two separate panels (no panel group association)
I can launch palette with new Window("palette") but it's not dockable. I've looked at Panel class and it seems like dead end - all read-only properties ..
There has to be a way. I've seen flash extension that was launched from custom menu and after clicking the menu item, panel group opened, in each panel SWF extension.

Yes, and yes.
You need to create a startup script to create the menu in the startup script. The script can launch as many extensions as you'd like.
The only straight-forward way I know to launch extensions from an external script, is by invoking the menu item of the panel.
FWIW, You will probably get better answers on Extension Builder / CS SDK in the CS SDK forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/creativesuites/cs_sdk
Sorry, I didn' realize I'm shouting in the wrong room. I'm gonna move my problems over there
