There is no right answer as every device and work flow is unique. That said, Aggressive Doze, Doze on the Go and Wakeup Timer Coalescing are popular choices with limited side effects. If you miss notifications or find your device lagging for a few seconds after wake disable Aggressive Doze. Resist the temptation to add every app/service to Greenify's action list; only target apps that demonstrate bad behaviors. If running Android 6+ doze will take care of most background activity w/o help from Greenify. It's a tool to address specific problems.

What is the difference between the three hibernation modes: default, normal hibernation, deep hibernation (by island)?

Default is whatever you set as the default in Greenify settings. Normal is what Android uses by default and is adequate for the vast majority of work flows. Deep requires an add on product (Island) and seems to be a solution looking for a problem. You could have discovered all this by searching the thread or reading documentation.

I absolutely concur to @Davey126's correct statement and recommendation, and I'm unable to add anything substantial. However, I like to share my settings (please refer to attached screenshots), and if interested and required I'll provide information, which of my applications are not greenified.
Regarding your question, at least from my point of view all settings are pretty well explained within Greenify but it's also worth to study the threads by @oasisfeng that are pinned to this Greenify forum.

I have problem with some apps, like Nine email client, which won't hibernate. Why is that?

They might be woken up by other apps. If so, you can cut off the links using wakeup tracker option in Greenify's settings.

Merely enabling the option is not enough. You have to manually cut off the trigger. When an app which you greenified wakes up automatically and is shown in Greenify as pending hibernation, if you long press the app, it will show some info like which app or process triggered it and whether it is critical etc. Then you can click the three dot menu button at top right and choose to cut off the trigger using the scissor icon or to ignore its running state. Then it will remain hibernated. Be careful while choosing the options since it may have unwanted side effects. Unless you are sure that you don't absolutely want that app to run in the background and be woken only upon your choosing to open it, don't meddle with the options.

EDIT: I am rusty with Greenify since I haven't installed it for my daily driver and hence the instructions are from memory. There may be some slight differences with what I stated and the actual behaviour.

I don't see these Greenify options but my device is running android 4.4.2 and that might be the reason.
