10gallon Tank Stocking advice
I am thinking of stocking my tank with
6 neon tetras,
2 Dwarf Guramis
Is this a good mix?
How should I introduce the fish? Neons first then gouramis?

multiple gouramis will never work in that size of tank, nor in any tank size smaller than 100G. Nor a common pleco.
I will just do 8-10 neon tetras and call it a day.Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL
Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

+1 to that.
You can't keep 2 gouramis together... they'll kill each other.
Plecos will grow to a length which is longer than your tank length... not a good choice for a tank that small.
You can stock 15 or so neons and some shrimp. Would look quite nice with some live low maintenance plants.

+1 to above.
Neons or Ember Tetras and shrimp is all I would recommend.
Or if you really like the Dwarf Gourami's just keep ONE on it's own in the tank. One DG is enough for a 10g.
What about microfish like Chilli Rasbora, Celestial Pearl Danios or Emerald Rasbora and some shrimp?
