Iv'e always wondered, where's the trigger?

Especially on the old plasma rifles.

I forgot where I heard it, but you squeeze the grip to make it fire.

The darker grey in the middle. It's a pressure trigger. It was made that way for universal shapes of hands, so anyone can use it.

so (even though only elites and brutes use it) jackals grunts and any other type of enemy/ally can use it?

In Halo 2 during the campaign you can equip grunts and jackals with it if you switch weapons with them.

Exactly! Since they don't recharge the plasma batteries, if the battery dies, you pick it up off the ground, and use it instead.

at first i thought why would they do that because then the enemy could use it but then i remembered the covenant isnt only one species

I thought it wasn't just a charge, I believe the focusing lens would burn out after so much use. I may be wrong though

its plasma, not lasers, no focusing lenses

The novels mention a lens for the plasma weapons.

I haven't read the novels, and the wiki has no lenses to speak of, so it's a general assumption that the bolts of plasma fire from the energy generator on the front of the weapon...
but I'm not 100% sure, to be honest

well in the novels the lenses were on the ships, and it was alluded that the technology was consistent. But then there was a notice that said the novels' information may or may not be considered canon at any given time, so what I'm saying may no longer be relevant.
