If I got pygmy Corydoras would that change anything?

No, pygmy corys and salt and pepper corys (habrosus) are basically the same size.

Guppies need to be on groups of 2 or more.
IMO guppies are fine on their own. If you are keeping more than one, and both are male to prevent breeding, only having two can be an issue because of aggression. Honestly with this stocking I would skip guppies entirely and just go with the DG and corys, although I personally keep them in bigger tanks. I would look into sparkling gouramis instead. You can have more than one, just make sure to densely plant the tank to prevent aggression.

with cories, the more the merrier, definitely! I personally think even the dwarf cory species (habrosus, pygmaeus and hastatus) need to be in larger tanks, minimum 20 gallon. You will see so much better and natural behavior in larger groups 8+ and bigger space.

I also think that 1 dwarf gouramI in a 10 gallon is pushing it.

For a 10g, I would go with 5 male guppies and some snails or shrimp for bottom feeders.
