CAt 9500 only can be done with Stackwise virtual - as you mentioned License is the limitation.

 

You can do other way is Make it Layer 3 Distribution, so Access layer can peer with Distribution using OSPF or EIGRP ( again Look at the License).

distribution 2 X Cisco 9500 series i will use FHRP any protocol to connect with core switch.

from distribution Cisco 9500 series how can i make redundant link to Access layer please explain ??

 

You need to run between 2 X  9500 - OSPF or EIGRP your choice, i prefer OSPF

 

Access switch - 2 Uplink, 1  go to Switch 1 9500 and 2 uplink go to switch 2 9500 - run OSPF between Dist and Access switch, OSPF can take care of routing equal cost and failover.

 

Layer 3 SVI for user VLAN in Access switch, this is a standard 3 tier setup.
