Listen, Betta fish aren't complicated at all. In fact, they can live up to ten seconds out of water, don't try that, but they can. But one thing they cant do, is live with another fish. Any fish at all. That is because they are carnivorious and they can't live in a tank with another fish because it will eat and/or kill it. Understand?

Provided the tank is large enough for both creatures you could try but it is possible that the Betta will rip the legs of the shrimp. To keep them successfully you will need a minimum of 3 gallons of water for the Betta and another 2 gallons for the shrimp, a filter, a heater/thermostat and a thermometer. So a (nominal) 5 gallon tank (which will only contain at most 4 gallons) is way too small.
