You should not run both on the same IP address. If a censor blocks your
obfs4 bridge IP, a user won't be able to connect using your snowflake
For Snowflake, you can also find the standalone proxy instructions here:

[X] All of the above :)
But, if it's your first running a relay, I would recommend starting with
a non-exit: bridge/middle/guard.
