SQL*Loader is Oracle utility which is to be run from the operating system command prompt, not SQL*Plus.

I guess that use of external tables would be easier (regarding the fact that your code is written in PL/SQL). For anything more, you'll have to explain what you are trying to do using a few more text lines.

For detailed description and explanation of any of those options would require someone to write another manual, just for you.
As you already know possible options (and keywords), ./fa/1681/0/ or use Google.
