how do you install sliding shower doors when a wall is not plumb...other than hanging the door crooked?

There are usually provisions for slight problems built into the design by the manufacturer, but if it is way out, it can be difficult. The solution for that may be shims and lots of caulk.

I dont understand your question.

The doors usually slide closed into the jamb which is like a pocket that would hide the fact that the wall isnt plumb. If it is really bad the doors should be adjustable.

shower doors have an adjustment on them usually around 30mm, you adjust the frame at whichever side to adhere to the wall measurement.
