When upgrading JIRA 6.2 into 6.4.14, do we need to re-licence the plugins ? because we are going to upgrade the plugins as well, since some of the plugins are not supported for 6.2

if you have a valid license , you don't need to buy new license to upgrade.

This depends on the plugin, not all plugins are compatible with even a minor JIRA upgrade, so it has happened to us that plugins that were licensed in JIRA 4 worked in JIRA 5.x but could not be upgraded due to having to repurchase (paid updates) for a new license and once we moved to 6.2.1 the were no longer working. If it's a critical plugin i would suggest paying for it or start thinking of how to work without it.
