That is not correct.   PSPP can produce piecharts, histograms, NPplots,
Box-Wisker plots, Scree Plots, ROC Curves ...

     Which programs/applications do you use to create diagrams
     a) for analysis with
     - nominal,
     - ordinal and
     - numeric (scale) data

I don't really see how one can do "analysis" with  a diagram, except in a very 
trivial sense
For example, a pie chart can tell you that most items are in category X.  Also 
an NPplot can tell
you that the data distribution is "close" to normal.

     b) for presentation with
     - nominal,
     - ordinal and
     - numeric (scale) data

Of course, the general answer to such a question is "It depends on which aspect 
of the data you 
which to emphasise in your presentation".
