Unless you are "restoring" the house or are in some way required to maintain historical accuracy, the best way to insulate is to tear all the plaster off, insulate, and replace the plaster with drywall, aka sheetrock or gypsum board. MUCH faster, cleaner, easier, gives a better surface to paint/wallpaper. Depending on the style of framing you find under the old plaster, you may have to put strapping up to have a suitable surface to screw the drywall to.
