All of them (depending how your Betta acts towards them though). I wouldn't add anything else to the 1g. It's pretty cramped already.

Cool. If I had to choose, I'd choose the 10g. You can fit fish tank mates (as well as shrimp and snails) and the water parameters/conditions will be more stable. Less fluctuations = happier, healthier fishes.

Any type of aquatic plant you like if you have the right growing conditions for it. For a beginner I'd recommend low light plants like mosses, java fern, anubia, crypts, hornwort, etc.

My betta had tank mates of a few tetras and corys. He never bothered them and they never minded him. It just depends on their personality. I've got one betta that we tried to put him in a bigger tank and he quit eating till we moved him back. He's just a grumpy old hermit lol.
