Could someone explain why I've received an invalid file format message from my BIMcloud platform when trying to import a .pln or .pla extension file?

Please take a look at the enclosed screenshot.

Hello Mjules,

BIMCloud do not work with pln or pla but with database
BIMCloud is able to export pln file to work on your desktop but I do not think it's possible to input a pln or pla into BimCloud
You have to open your pln or pla and then share it on Bimcloud

You are able to download this kind of file from BimCloud but I do not understand what does it mean :
"2020.05.26 18-00 Automatic Backup.BIMProject22"

BIMcloud can export and import Projects shared on it. The purpose of this is so you can migrate Teamwork Projects from one BIMcloud server to another BIMcloud server by exporting the Project from one server and importing the exported file on another server.
Just as Christophe stated, it is not intended for importing PLN/PLA files.
