Use BOSS to sort and order your mods. Also use Wrye if needed.

TBH there is no easy answer for diagnosing crashes. You have to know all the mods you have installed, what their changes affect and start the process of divide and conquer (i.e. disabling mods and reenabling them to recreate and isolate the glitch).

Sometimes mod makers have solutions for specific situations that others have encountered on their mod page - check there first.

Personally, I keep a couple of pristine saves (started with the currently installed version of Skyrim - not an older one) with no mods installed and use that as the test platform - just make sure you don't overwrite it so that it stays pristine. Use the console to advance yourself if necessary to test the specific problem at hand and activate mods to try to recreate it.

My own approach (I use maybe 30-40 non-texture mods) is to enable 20 mods, test and then either start removing mods if I was able to recreate the glitch or continue to add mods if the initial test failed to duplicate it. It doesn't take as long as you'd think.

Your end goal should be to completely isolate the glitch, so you can give appropriate feedback to the mod maker so they can more easily recreate it and if possible fix the problem.

BOSS can auto sort your mods, and will even let you know if they are incompatible if the mod is in their system.

It is suggesting you to create a Bash Patch with Wrye Bash. Also, it suggest to tag the 2 esps as "delev,relev" before doing it.
