no on the distilled water. That will likely cause a change in ph.

I love bettas and I don't want to risk them by breeding them (I'm not that experienced). So can anybody tell me how many guppies to keep in a tank? What size should that tank be? Do I need a filter? I need a guppy expert!

Hai again :)

If you have room for all the babies, go for it! How many guppies you get will depend on the size tank you're getting. The minimum is 10gal, (I keep mine in a 5gal cause I didn't know that when I got them and Mom won't let me upgrade >_>). In a ten gal, I would go for...6, 1 male per 2 females.. YES, definitely need a filter. They're messy little brats -_-
Be sure to get lots of cover so the females can hide from the males if they get sick of being chased.
Good luck!! :)

Instead of complaining about the babies, why not feed the fry to the other fish? I will sometimes but guppy fry from the pet store and drop one in for each of my bettas, and they love it! One every week or so would be fine i think.
