Mix of Azure AD Joined and Active Directory Joined Devices

An organization I started working for has the following setup. All users are using AAD accounts to login. There are only 5 out of the 85 devices not including servers which are joined to Active Directory onprem.

Make all devices Active Directory joined so they can be managed via GP, etc.... Also all users to do not have AD accounts currently. So my question is, do we add the workstations to the domain first, then create the user accounts? Or do both at once.

This is a mess I am trying to clean up so I am open to suggestions.

    So is everyone saying I should join the workstation to the domain and give the user their new AD login at the same time?
