Is there any plot or visualizing program that can plot the distribution of a plaintext and then the distribution of the ciphertext after applying a ciphering encryption algorithm? I am interested from stream ciphers

What you are looking for is a histogram plot.
For example, the distribution of letters in the english language looks like this:
The plot of a ciphertext from a strong cipher should have all bars about the same height (a fairly uniform distribution).
