On the 5th lever, I'm still a beginner myself and have never played a guitar with one on it. Some of the more experienced folks on here could probably answer that one better. I would only comment that I've not seen any beginner material that uses it.

Verticals are not necessary for beginners. It doesn't hurt to have one, but, like a zero pedal, it's not something that's needed.

My advise is that you get a guitar with 3 and 4 and worry about adding a vertical after you've played for a few years.

I'm pretty sure that most modern guitars are predrilled for additional pedals and knees, so if you decide you want to add them later, you just install a kit.
I'd just make sure that this is the case, then order 3&4 and add more knees as the desire strikes.
