In this game black made some mistakes which leads to the final position.
While analyzing this game the engine is not willing to capture the bishop.

Without capturing the bishop on the 1st move how can I proceed as black ?
What are possible plans for black after the 6th move to get an advantage?

What could be possible plans for black after 6th move to get advantage?

None. 1...gxh5 is a huge mistake, after which Black is definitely losing.

Without capturing bishop at 1st move how can i proceed as black ?

1...Bd4 is an excellent move, immediately threatening the pawn on e5. The positions that arise after 1...Bd4 are extremely complex. I have attempted to analyze a few with the help of the Houdini 1.5 and Stockfish 4.2 engines. Black is able to hold the position after 1...Bd4 and make a draw.

Maybe trying to break the pawn structure with something like:

[White "ahesham"]
[Black "myking64"]
[FEN "r1q2r2/1pp2pk1/p1n1bNp1/2b1P1Pp/4PQ1P/8/PPP1BP2/2KR3R w KQkq - 0 1"]

1.Bxh5 Bxf2 2. Qxf2 Nxe5
