I would stake the plant for now, to help ensure it does not suffer damage or break.
If you are going to transplant it to another part of the garden you will need to do some planning.
You will want to do some root pruning this season to move next season.
By taking a sharp shovel you can sever the large roots around the plant. This will then encourage the Plumeria to start to grow smaller roots in the area that will be moved.
