You could get some ghost shrimp, 2 african dwarf frogs, and 4 dwarf cory catfish.
What I am reading from many sites is tanks from 20-24in which is anything from 10g to 20g, group sizes are taken into account. Smaller numbers of six can do fine in 10g but larger groups are preferred in 15g-20g tanks.
Neons are very fragile fish that should not be added to new tanks, but mature setups that have been cycled for a while. The size of the tank isn't the problem here, but rather the age of the tank being used :)

Yes you could spilt it 3 ways. But no other fish. But in each section you could get a few ghost shrimp or a snail.

The frogs are cute. How dare you!

I would divide tank in half and buy a second betta. 2 happy betta with five gallons each would look nice. Bettas swim more side to side then up and down so dividing 3 ways would kind of scrunch up that space?
