I don't think your tank is overstocked. I would add more tetras of each species first before you get guppies or mollies.

I think this stocking is appropriate:
8 Neon Tetras
8 Black Neon Tetras
2 Male Guppies (Do not get female guppies, your tank will explode with babies)
Please rehome the pleco, it will get over a foot long easily

Good beginner plants are jungle val, java moss, dwarf sag, and water wisteria.

Are these for testing the water? Strips will cheaper at first, but a master kit with tubes would be better in the long run. You can perform hundreds of tests with the tubes, but the strips are a one use only.
