If the access is only for one IP or a few, he can open/allow port 3360 only to that IP(s) only with iptables or the like.

by default, mySQL is bound to the local loopback address (127.0.0.1) for security (open up mysql port to the internet it 'll make the database vulnerable to attacks).

Still, you should be able to do it. If it's not in the Plesk interface (I cannot confirm it right now, but I'll do later - I'm installing a Plesk test server), it should definitely be in the mysql configuration file (/etc/my.cnf depending on the distribution)

Never used Plesk, but you can set that up using phpMyAdmin. You might need to open the MySQL port on the firewall (best to add a rule so only certain IPs/subnets can connect, though). Also bear in mind that doing this is generally a bad idea.
