More live plants would help with water quality.

Aquatic plants. Stems or floaters would be great. No idea what you have access to.

Live plants do not make up for a lack of space, any more than water changes do. In fact, putting too much in the tank creates even less room for fish that could already wind up crowded.

Guppies are not so easy to give away. Too, even if you could give them to everyone you know, you would eventually run out of people without guppies of their own. If you are intent on keeping the females, then you might want to find someone local who would like the fry for feeders - it's the only way you can consistently and reliably get rid of them if the fish store wont take them, or you don't want to cull them. Of course, you can cross that bridge when you get there.

That's a good plan - If you WANT to spawn them, you can :)

Just a warning, but female guppies can store sperm for up to a year. Even separated you can still expect multiple births.

Yes, fish love the live plants and they make all tanks look way much better.
