WHO plans an engagement party?

Traditionally the bride's parents host, but these days it's entirely appropriate for anyone close to the couple to take on this role, or for several people (say, both sets of parents) to host jointly. You can also have more than one engagement party hosted by different people.

Subsequently, one may also ask, who is supposed to pay for an engagement party?

“Really anyone could pay for and plan the engagement party, though the bride's parents are the traditional hosts and should still get the first chance to throw this party. It's also okay not to have an engagement party at all or to have two. In this case, it's usually one in the bride and groom's respective hometowns.
