Will this plugin work if I'm not using a Theme Blvd theme?

Yup, but it just won't do a whole lot. You'll essentially end up with a "Portfolio Item" custom post type and associated "Portfolio" and "Portfolio Tag" taxonomies.

How can change the number of columns and rows in portfolio archive grids?

function my_grid_columns() {
    return 3; // Number of columns (1-5)
add_filter('themeblvd_default_grid_columns', 'my_grid_columns');
function my_grid_rows() {
    return 4; // Number of rows per page
add_filter('themeblvd_default_grid_rows', 'my_grid_rows');

How can disable portfolio archives from displaying in a grid?

function my_portfolio_mods() {

    $portfolios = Theme_Blvd_Portfolios::get_instance();

    remove_filter( 'themeblvd_theme_mode_override', array( $portfolios, 'theme_mode' ) );
    remove_filter( 'themeblvd_template_parts', array( $portfolios, 'template_parts' ) );

add_action('after_setup_theme', 'my_portfolio_mods');

How can I change the sidebar layout of Portfolio and Portfolio Tag archives?

If you're using a theme with Theme Blvd framework 2.5+, there's a user option for this at Appearance > Theme Options > Layout > Sidebar Layout > Portfolios. And if not, you can use the following code.

function my_sidebar_layout( $layout ) {

    if ( is_tax('portfolio') || is_tax('portfolio_tag') ) {
        $layout = 'full_width';

    return $layout;
add_filter('themeblvd_sidebar_layout', 'my_sidebar_layout');

How can I change the URL slug of Portfolio and Portfolio Tag archives?

function my_portfolio_tax_args( $args ) {
    $args['rewrite'] = array('slug' => 'my-slug');
    return $args;
add_filter('themeblvd_portfolio_tax_args', 'my_portfolio_tax_args');
function my_portfolio_tag_tax_args( $args ) {
    $args['rewrite'] = array('slug' => 'my-other-slug');
    return $args;
add_filter('themeblvd_portfolio_tag_tax_args', 'my_portfolio_tag_tax_args');

Note: Remember to flush your re-write rules! In other words, after you make this change, go to Settings > Permalinks in your WordPress admin, and re-save the page.
