I have a 2016 Trek Fuel Ex 5 which is currently a 2x10 from factory with Sram X5 shifters and sram Gx rear derailleur. I have taken the front derailleur off and put on a narrow wide 32t chainring up front. I just bought a sram Gx Xg 1150 cassette along with a new Sram Gx rear derailleur with clutch system for it to get and extra granny gear, need help with other components I may need along the way (shifters, etc.) and do I need an XD free hub I would also like to upgrade the points of contact as well ty for the help.

The XG 1150 cassette is for XD free hubs.
As for shifters, you can use any Sram 11 speed shifter. So GX is fine.
With points of contact you mean a hub with higher engagement, right?
Wheels with a DT Swiss 350, or 240 hubs have the ratchet system which is great and can be upgraded with higher engagament ratchet rings later if you want even more,
