Hi Luke- Your question is pretty sophisticated for a first-grader! I've put it as a follow-up to one with some useful background.
I'm not sure if you mean Bose-Einstein "particles" ("bosons") or a Bose-Einstein condensate, so I'll answer both.
Plasmas meet up with Bose-Einstein particles all the time. That's because electromagnetic waves (radio waves, microwaves, light, etc.) are made of bosons. Since plasmas emit lots of light and absorb it too, they're always meeting bosons. When you see a glow from a plasma, that's bosons coming from it.
Since you're talking about "states of matter" perhaps what you're asking about is the Bose-Einstein condensate. I can't think right away of a case where a plasma and a B-E condensate bumped into each other. Probably it's happened somewhere, maybe even in a lab accident. Since the plasmas are hot and typical B-E condensates are delicate, that would probably be the end of the condensate. Sort of like the famous movie, Bambi meets Godzilla.
