It depends on the Temperament of the Betta fish some are ok some are not .So unless you add fish you wont really know what temperament your Betta fish has .

I don't think there is a way to tell before hand. It all really depends on your specific betta. Mine gets along great with my neon tetras and guppies. Apparently it's unusual for bettas and guppies to get along so each fish has a different personality. Just have a backup plan if your betta doesn't get along with your other fish. You don't want to add unnecessary stress to any of your fish! :)

You can't with any certainty. Bettas are like the German Shepherds of the fish world. Some are friendly, others bite and fight. If the one you are buying flares at you in the store, it's more likely to be aggressive, but they are all upset in those little bowls in stores anyhow. They are less likely to be aggressive if kept in decent size (at least 10 gallon) tanks.

A big tank as in a 10 gallon? You can't make sure that your betta really can get along with other fish. Some bettas are aggressive with some are shy. Every fish/animal/living thing has it's own personality. The ghost shrimp will work but will get eaten. It will work because it's transparent. Bottom dwellers are nice, but it depends on what you are getting. Loaches such as clown loaches aren't going to work as they grow really big. The cory and otocinclus will do good. Just keep a close eye on them. Make sure you have a backup tank if anything goes wrong. Hope I helped!
