I have bought the Vinten Vision Blue, The Bluebridge and now I need a cheaper head and I am looking at the Manfrotto 502. Will I be able to use the plates (namely the Bluebridge) with it to raise the CG of the setup? In few words: Are Vinten and Manfrotto plates interchangeable?

While Sachtler, Vinten, Manfrotto, and others are owned by the same company, they sadly don't share specs for gear. I've never had a Vinten plate (and I own a Vinten Pro 10) fit onto a Manfrotto tripod (which I've tried as I have some clients using Manfrotto).
