No fish "needs" plants, but they do prefer them, and it's a personal choice. A planted tank visually looks nicer to many.
You stocking list looks okay, but I've been warned against keeping a male/female pair of Bolivian Rams, so I'll be curious how that works for you.
I'd wait on the Otos until your tank is more mature and you have algae, unless you'll supplement them with algae wafers (which my Bolivian Ram likes)
