You should get the water tested...check ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and pH. Most petstores should be willing to do this for free (chains like PetCo and PetsMart included). It sounds like something might be off.
I'm not sure exactly what you need to know but platies often breed without any human intervention. They can drop fry every 3-4 weeks but it depends on the fish and tank conditions. I wouldn't purposely breed your platies unless you have another tank for the fry.
I have never heard of guppies and platies breeding, I doubt it's possible. If they did then the babies probably would be infertile.
I wouldn't try creating hybrids anyways...you don't know what health problems could arise.
