Well, i saw fluorecent lamps that produces UV light to help animals, etc.. These fluorecent can help plants too?

I assume (always dangerous) that these are the black lights available at, for instance, Wal-Mart. Black lights are UVA, wavelength from 400 nm to 315 nm, energy of 3.10–3.94 eV per photon.
I seriously doubt they will do you any harm.
Or they may be the low level UVA/UVB herpetology or herpetoculture lights, a combination of the black light and UVB, wavelength from 315 nm to 280 nm, energy of 3.94–4.43 eV per photon.
I suppose if you worked at it the UVB could hurt you, we use them for our reptiles and some birds, as far as I know, no one has been harmed by them.
I think plants can gain benefit from UVA to a limited extent, I do not think UVB is any use to plants.
Our UV sterilizers are UVC, wavelength from 280 nm–100 nm, energy of 4.43–12.4 eV per photon. These are getting into the dangerous range.
