i'm going to set up a planted 10 gallon tank
plants, driftwood, terra cotta pots, - so plenty of hiding places

would it still be stupid to have a betta and like 4 red cherry shrimp? will the betta harass/eat them?

welcome to fishlore!
its not stupid but they could be a meal ...plenty of hiding spots help though just make sure nothing is too sharp to rip a nylon or it could rip your betta babies fins

Welcome to Fishlore!
I had my RCS with a betta and the betta never seemed to notice them. The only thing I would suggest is to add a couple more RCS just so they have a better chance of reproducing and will be fine even if the betta eats one or two.

Thick, dense plants also help the shrimp hide. I have java moss and my shrimp love it. As NMfishman suggested, I'd say go for around 12 shrimp to make survival more probable.
