I bought a new switch (WS-C3750X-24P) licensed with ipbase. Currently installed IOS is C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M

License Level: ipbase
License Type: Permanent
Next reload license Level: ipbase

I have SMARTNET, If I want to upgrade to IPservices, license required to purchase separately. or its a free upgrade?

I think can run evaluation for some period? (in case trouble). Is it three months?

EIGRP cause any issue if one switch using IPservices and another using IPbase in stack mode?

if you want yes, please check this thread:

I think you need to unstack them, use eval license, stack them again to make it work.

Both switches need to be running the same license level!
