I've been buying the Be series when they have been on sale, and realized I had his BEC in my library. Is the BEC just all of the books combined into one big one?

The BEC is all of the Nwe Testament BE Books combined as per description at https://www.logos.com/product/541/the-bible-exposition-commentary-an-exposition-of-the-new-testament-containing-the-entire-be-series

From appearances the BE series on Vyrso was the new revised version of the Be Series.

I believe the Wiersbe books in Vyrso were study guides. I also believe Logos have only ever offered the BE series NT books as a single 2 volume set covering every NT book. The BE OT books are available as individual volumes or as a set.

Yes. They complement the commentaries by citing shorter excerpts, but then post study questions. The study guide to a certain extent presupposes the possession of the commentary for deeper interaction (I'm thinking of a study group scenario where participants own the study guide, but the leader has the commentary at hand) 

Look at this example: left is "Be Comforted" (Isaiah), right is the Study Guide:

I see now that they were the study guides. But I did notice that they reference the study guide to the 2nd edition of the BE series. 

Does anyone no how much was changed between the 1st and the 2nd editions?
