These are two different things. The esp is required always or the mod won’t be active. The LE bsa needs to be extracted to the loose files (these are meshes, textures, etc), whether you create a new bsa in the SE format or keep it loose is up to you. I typically leave everything loose.
Can’t help with the patches for beastess, I play it without them. I don’t care about the sneak animation and I figure the estrus charus patch is horribly out of date with the current EC version and would do more harm than good. Same with the vampire patch. I may throw slave tats back in now that it’s working. The most trouble I’ve had is with talking to a creature for a quest. The problem there is a known one due to having untamed installed too.
