what is better for single user instance, or maybe something small like under 10 users (no communities)? which is lighter on resources? how much storage should I allocate?

any alternatives to lemmy and kbin that are still somewhat similar?

      Kbin is PHP app so you should be able to tune down idle worker counts to use less memory. Certainly not as low as Lemmy being a compiled rust app, but 500 MB of RAM usage should be achievable. As for CPU usage, I’ve been running a personal Lemmy instance and I’m impressed with how low the CPU usage so far, even after federating with dozens communities. Can’t say the same about Kbin because I haven’t actually run it myself, but PHP 8’s JIT is very fast so I imagine it shouldn’t use too much CPU as well.
