Get the FPS Winter Stress Test Map from Here (copy the folder to your saves folder, change all settings to the max as shown in the video to test performance in your game with vanilla game and with the mods)
(Experimental) You can also get the C2ME Mod which improves chunk performance in Minecraft. As this is still in Alpha stage, it was not included in the list but you can get the latest version from Here
At this point your pack should be complete and you should be getting much better performance.
You can measure your FPS by either enabling the FPS counter in the Sodium Extra mod's settings or grab Fraps or MSI Afterburner apps from Here
You can swap Starlight with Phosphor if you want, grab Phosphor from Here
I would recommend you get the CurseForge client (view full tutorial Here) and then get the Boosted FPS modpack! it will have even more performance and QoL mods in the pack and cool loading screen.
Grab the Boosted FPS pack from Here (below screenshot from Boosted FPS loading screen)
