Drilling Plaque into Wall

What bolts or other parts do I need to drill the plaque in the photo below into a hollow stucco wall? Will the anchor kit in the photo below work? Thank you for your advice.

Those should work fine.

Another way is to measure your bolt distance apart, and if it is 16", you can find the studs and use them.

Bolt it to a wood backer that is wider than 16" and then bolt that board to the studding.

There are several ways to skin a cat.

Depends on the type of Stucco conventional Stucco yes.
Synthetic Stucco NO.

Drywall/hollow wall anchors suck, they rarely work well. Can you find the studs? If you can put a single screw into a stud, you could then hang it from a wire via the plaque's 2 holes. And the hanger will be much stronger, self leveling and you won't make a mess of the wall. But you will see a bit of wire on the plaque.. unless you use fishing wire.
