You should be able to debug by enabling the "software support installation..." option in the configuration tab of the launch configuration.
Note that the p2 profile generated is abridged and will not contain reference to features, so be sure in your experiment to not require a feature.

Typically you want to keep the plugin containing the action separated from the plugin being installed, since they serve different purpose and have slightly different lifecycles (for example the action is not necessary once the application has been installed)
The action does not need to be in its own feature and can just be delivered in a plugin.
