Configuration options can be put inside the 'webpack.config.js' file (no .babelrc file)
A Plugin is a specific code transformation that can be included during compilation.

A Preset is a group of plugins used to support particular language features.
link - babeljs.io/docs/en/presets
You can use a separate file or you can include these details into the 'webpack.config.js' file
Adding the presets and plugins to the webpack config file will only affect webpack
Anything else that uses Babel will be looking for the .babelrc file.
This lets you load other babel presets.
npm install --save-dev babel-loader
This includes a custom regenerator runtime and core.js
This emulates a full ES 2015 environment
This needs to be dependency not a devDependency
This replaces '@babel/polyfill' which was deprecated in Babel version 7.4.0
This lets you access the babel API.
npm install --save-dev @babel/core
