Microsoft Office 365 Business plan questions

#1
Our organization is under 200 people. I am just starting to learn about all the options and it seems to change over time. My understanding is that the business essentials and premium plans use exchange plan 1 which has no archiving. It seems we may need plan 2. Can you add plan 2 for the $4 difference?
Also wondered if this can be done to a mixture of essential and premium users. So an essential user would be $9 with exch2, and a premium user would be 16.50 with exch 2. This idea would be limiting the number of premium users.
Another thought is whether it may be better/worse to use an archiving service outside of 365. We currently use a barracuda with our on-premise exchange.
thx

You say you're just starting to explore all of the options, but you don't tell us what options and what service or software you're referring to. More information please?

Sounds like it's a consideration of options under Office 365.

As far as I know, you can mix and match licenses as you desire. You may want to open a discussion with Microsoft, though, to talk through it. They've actually been pretty good and helping me through a few things. I can't answer anything about archiving.

Sorry, just not exactly sure how to answer. @Jim Wynne provided probably the best advice. They (MS) area actually pretty helpful when it comes to explaining their products. We have a mix of Plan 1 (email only, $4/use/month) and E3 (Office Suite + email $20/user/month) and a smattering of other things (Visio, MS Project).

I don't really know anything about archiving.
