I'm not sure about cories, but I know bettas don't do well with guppies.

And cories do need to be in groups.

Some bettas can do fine with guppies actually. But not all. You'd have better luck with females. As for cories, I would say most are fine. Any I have tried ignored the cories. Depends on your fish.

It is not absolutely necessary, you can go without them if you need to, but it is definitely advised.

They need a heater. A filter is optional, but it will keep a cleaner, healthier tank.

No. If the male likes the female. If he doesn't like her...he'll kill her.

Bettas and corys are fine together but you will need a filter if you're keeping corys. Corys have a habit of kicking up dust and debris so if there's no filter your water will become cloudy fast

It depends on the Betta. I had one slaughter young Panda Cories.
And yes, a heater and adjustable flow filter are recommended.

What size tank ??
