My term has multiple plural forms, how can I deal with this? 🔗

Use the plural key for the plural term you are most likely to use, and use one of the user keys for the other plurals. For example:

\newglossaryentry{cow}{name=cow,
  description={a fully grown female of any bovine animal (plural
cows, archaic plural kine)},
  user1={kine}}

\let\glsaltpl\glsuseri
You can now use \glspl for the first plural and \glsaltpl for the second plural. There are six user keys, so this method can be used for other grammatical constructs as well. As from version 4.0, you can also define your own keys via \glsaddkey. See the section Additional Keys in the user manual for further details.
