If you have mainly moderate to high lighting plants, but still want a few low light, will they live together without problems? Or do you have to stick to one or the other?

Most "low light" plants will grow with more lighting; it's more of a problem in reverse--plants requiring high light will usually not survive with low light as it is too inadequate. Plants like crypts and pygmy chain sword will grow along the substrate where the taller and more light requiring plants will partially shade them. And light weakens as it travels deeper in the water column. iamntbatman gave some very good advice on the bulbs and output.
