Does it matter if my MX switches are plate vs. PCB mounted type?

Yes and no. In my experience, I have actually broken part of a Planck PCB trying to remove a PCB-mount switch. It is nearly impossible to remove. So you absolutely want to use plate-mount switches (without the extra 2 legs). Luckily, you can simply cut those legs off (I use wire cutters) and then they will work fine.
