So, I have checked further and I got below information for the following questions:

>>can you guide if I am using classic then also can go for LFO?
Currently, you can configure for both from the setup but do keep in mind, in December 2020, Salesforce for Outlook is retiring as mentioned in the article: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=outlookcrm_sfo_about.htm&type=5

>>can I keep active SFO for these classic users, and rest of classis users can start using LFO?
Yes but make to have only one configuration for each user as we cannot set multiple configurations for a single user.

It is also suggested to move the users from SFO to lightning for outlook but now it is being suggested to move to Einstein Activity Capture
