Try to disable it with the right-to-use license:

Switch# license right-to-use deactivate ipbase all
Switch# reload

You cannot stack them if they have different licenses. Yes, you can downgrade them with the help of Cisco License TAC at "Cisco Licensing Support" . Its painful but I have done it before.
