raid 0 will not offer any protection so go with raid 1

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

depends fully on whether you want capacity or redundancy.  RAID 0 is "faster" but has no redundancy and you probably won't see any difference over the LAN.  RAID 1 offers redundancy, but cuts your capacity in half.  

Also, RAID isn't supposed to be a backup solution, you still need to backup important files.

Should I use the 1996GB left over or leave some space if I use 0?

There is no reason for the 20GB for misc. storage.  It just means that the person that wrote that guide wanted about 20GB of non-mirrored (unimportant?  temporary?) disk space.  I'd make the whole thing RAID.
