Obtaining servants/helpers
I've had two tag-along NPC's die on me. I need another second set of hands and pack mule. How & where do I go about finding people who will join-up and travel around with me?

Also, I now have a house...how to get the wall guards? I've killed a giant, 3 bandits, and 4 wolves since building the wall.

Thanks in advance

Wall?
Wall guards?
You have some mods installed, you need to check those mods for your issue.

Every hold inn usually has a mercenary for hire. Just remember that if you dismiss them and then want to get them back you have to pay their fee again. You can easily kill your own companions by using an AOE spell or clouting them with a weapon when they get in your way, so be careful when fighting.

Other NPC's may offer help after you have done them a favour (completed a quest). This includes all three of the apprentice mages at Winterhold . Faendal OR Swen in Riverwood etc.

The minion system in Nature of the Beast II is what you are looking for. Use Ultimate Follower Overhaul with it and go hire some mercenaries.

Yes, I used the lakeview plugin but I've been unable to get the guards.. I've spoken to the Jarl and the Steward of Falkreach and they havewn't offered anything or anyway to get the manppower.

What is Lakeveiw plugin?
You using some mod. Check the mod maker for walls.
The Jarl can help you since you using one mod.
You can still try to hire some.

Read the book that came with mod if you havent read it, it should still sitting on the armor bench tells you how, your own steward can get the guards, for 1000 each, if you bring lydia to lakeveiw home, she will offer or ask to be your steward

If you impress a Jarl (do quests for citizens in his Hold), you will be granted a Housecarl (follower). You can take your Housecarl to your home and make them stay there and guard the place, but then you need another follower.

Hired merenary is available in Drunken Huntsman in Whiterun for 500 gold or for free (if you can beat her at brawling (use a healing potion if you need to)) at the Bannered Mare.

For other followers, you can find a stray dog and talk to it, or buy a war dog outside Markarth for 500 gold. AFAIK you can have 1 humanoid and 1 animal follower at the same time. Throw in a conjured assisstant and combat can become like conducting an orchestra.

Unfortunately I managed to get Lydia killed while I was still learning the ropes. I really could use all guards though. Since building the wall I've had 4 wolves, 3 bandits, and 1 giant get through my wall - annoying wondering each time you exit the house if you'll be attacked.

I'll check the book.
