    It's a recommended post plugin. Search around and you'll find one, or just message the person and ask what plugin he's using.

    Related posts. No plugins needed, that can be done by changing the theme.

    Use related posts, not require plugins.

    My guess would be that you can find it under widgets, it should be there with a number of other things you can drag into your sidebar to have displayed.

    I tried using the Recent Posts widget... but the thumbnails didn't show up. This website I have mentioned above is probably able to set images on another server as featured images, in which case the thumbnails might show up. My question is... how is that website able to set images hosted on another domain+server as featured images?

    Check this plugin out, it looks similar or might be the same.

    That's right, but the images that we see as thumbnails are actually hosted on a different server. I'm wondering how he's able to do that.

    From the page you referred to:
    - Note : This plugin is showing thumb images which are exists in posts and also exists on same server, Images from remote server are not showing in related posts to prevent bandwidth theft.
