Platies won't work for a 5g tank, they are just too messy.
Bettas are fine, you could even have 2 with a tank divider, but it would be happier by itself.
You could get up to 3 guppies. Just add them slowly so that you don't cripple the bio-load.
Shrimp are sometimes eaten by bettas (and maybe guppies), so they are somewhat of a risk.

Here are some other fish that you could have;
Pygmy Corydoras
Celestrial Danio
Scarlet Badis
Ember Tetra
Endler
and there might be afew others.

For a 5 gallon, you could always make an invertebrate tank...
Some RCS and a CPO. :)

I definately vote planted, even if it's just some dwarf sag and ludwigea repens.

From my experience, if you get a betta, don't get shrimp as well. Unless of course your planning on the shrimp being a treat for the betta. Nom nom nom....
