Your forum profile gives both Windows and Linux as OS,

Gimp 2.9.6 so assuming Windows.  Unlike Windows Gimp 2.8.x the 2.9 development version does not support 32 bit plugins.

I do have a 64 bit Save-for-Web (webexport.exe) - attached, remember to unzip it.

This is a really old plugin, the code needs a re-write but I doubt if that will ever happen.

Just about works, throws up error messages, not just deprecated warnings but amazingly does export the file. You will have to put up with the error messages. 
Screenshot looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/uGRo8Il.jpg

If you do need the linux version, just ask.

Hello,
Thanks for listening.

At the moment I use Windows 10, I put the plugin in the right folder, it appeared on the file menu but when I click on it it does not open, only on the second attempt it opens only the error windows and not the plugin.

I would like the Linux version too.

if there is another similar plugin that has these functions for Gimp 2.9.6 I am also interested in checking.
I already tested RIOT but it also did not work on the new gimp.

Just checking but you did unzip the file and put it in the Gimp 2.9.6 profile

C:\Users\your-name\Appdata\Roaming\GIMP\2.9\plug-ins

Yet another screenshot in Windows 10, showing that it does just about work. Do not expect to get anything other than jpegs as output. https://i.imgur.com/GZ25WDM.jpg

The error messages are a nuisance, just put up with them.

Needs updating for Gimp 2.9.x but I doubt if anyone will do it.

Exactly the same applies to the Linux version, you failed to say which linux you use, but for what it is worth the linux webexport 64 bit attached. (the usual, unzip it, check permissions etc)

Other than that, You can run both Gimp 2.8 and Gimp 2.9.6 in Windows, why not just use Gimp 2.8 for webexport?

Currently, using as 2 versions, 2.9 for worker and 2.8 for exporting images to the web, look for open plugin now but as you are not exported to PNG, is there any other plugin with this utility for version 2.9?

Very unexpected message, in standard Python this shouldn't not print anything if the procedure doesn't return values. Does:  
Code:
print pdb.file_png_get_defaults()
answers:
Code:
None

Nothing that I know for Gimp 2.9

When it comes to PNG Gimp already uses maximum (9) compression, so the manual alternatives are.

To keep as RGB,
Reduce the number of colours: Colors -> Posterize (with a suitable) value
Scale the image down, or a combination of both.

Convert to Color Indexed, which will reduce the number of colours Image -> Mode - Indexed then export the image.

If you have a constant set of parameters then maybe a plugin will suffice.
(Example: I use one to scale 2/3 and apply a little sharpen, prior to exporting as a 85 quality jpeg. Near enough to put up on imgur.)

There are utilities to optimise a png - search for pngcrush or pngout - but IMHO unlikely to make much difference.
