Yes, each type of tetra needs 6 to have a proper school.

Yes it does matter, those are different species and will not school together. Each of those tetras needs 6+ of each.

Given the size of my tank (38) gal, do I have room to add 8 more fish?

It should be fine. Just slowly add them. Wait another week or so and add in the rest of the neons then wait another week to two weeks and add in the phantoms. Everything should be good.
