Now should they purchase another 7 TB licesnse or they can Mix the traditional Licenses (Agent for Hyper V) and the capacity Edition ( base platform licenses)

As per the Licensing Guide (you can download it from PartnerNet):

Customers may choose between licensing models, but cannot mix and match license models within the same NetBackup domain.

So, the answer is No.
Traditional and Capacity licenses cannot be mixed.
