I wouldn't add another Male swordtail. If anything I'd get another female, and at least 2 more Cory's to make up a small shoal

Would just one female swordtail max out my tank ? I'm trying to add as many fish wihout overstocking.

Pretty much it will say how stocked your tank is, and also a little bit of overstock is okay, just requires more filtration and water change volume.

I'm not the best stocker, but please add 4 more corydora of the same species of your current ones.
They need atleast 6 to have a school of them.

My plan after checking with aqadvisor will be 2 more Cory's and 2 more Rasbora. I have had the first two Cory's for 10 months and they seem happy I was warned at least 4 corys

Yes, 4 cories will be fine, though 6 is the most recommended amount. 4 should thrive happily, but if you have extra room, add more to make them more comfortable. Even 5 is better. Four shouldn't be a problem though.

Why the salt?

I wouldn’t use salt unless you kept brackish fish.

I would discontinue it’s use.

The rasporas and corys won’t enjoy it, the others may.

The lfs where I buy all my fish use asalt in all their tanks and recommends a tablespoon of salt with every 5gals . I also feel it helps the skin stay disease free. In 10 months I have not had any problems.

LFSs usually have pre-made saltwater but if they don't then use nanbridg's advice - I don't know much about salt to water ratios in aquariums.
