Hi,

They all refer to the idea of acceptance.

Agree on a plan suggests two or more people have the same idea about what should be done.

Agree with a proposal or another person when you accept that proposal or the person's point view because both are the same - yours and theirs.

Agree to often plus an infinitive as in: agree to do something as when you have volunteered to do something.

Welcome, NC7!

Indeed, you can either agree to something or agree something: We have agreed (to) their request.
