Does Teams allow me to invite non-Office 365 users to join that team? Eg. Clients that don't actually use Office 365? I don't want the complication of licensing to have to factor into asking clients to join in on the teams...

at the moment Teams does not include Third-Party User Access.
This means, neither your Non-O365 Users nor external Users can access MS Teams.
You CAN add external users to Office 365 Groups, just not use MS Teams with that group.
But it is one of the TOP priorities of the MS Teams - Team at MS.

Do we know if these non-Office365 users will have to pay to access? Or tiers (including a free level)? I would like to know so I don't waste time setting it up.

as far as I know there is no charge applied to the external users.
There may be a charge applied to you, but there is no evidence of that fact yet.
It might happen in the future, to prevent exploiting this mechanic.
But I don't know, so we just have to wait a little bit further.

I understand that Microsoft 365 Enterprise 3 and 5 tiers, as of July 2019, also offer business calling phone numbers and plans as added subscription features. I am curious if this further extends the guest feature of MS Teams, or is a completely separate, different capability. If I place a call with MS calling from Teams or Skype for Business to a phone number -- as opposed to a guest account -- what is the user experience? Is the call recipient placed into the meeting via voice only?@Mårten Hellebro
