Attaching vinyl to stucco, need a few ID

The house is stucco (old), and I would like a few ideas on how to do this? One used furring strips, put insulation behind the vinyl?

Welcome to the forums! You said "old" stucco. What is behind the stucco? More modern stucco usually has OSB behind it with foam and lath. That would give enough support for siding. Consider where your siding will junction with door and window frames, as that will have to be dealt with no matter how you attach it. Using furring strips will increase the profile another 3/4", so that adds to the misery of trim. Adding the fanfold insulation provides minuscule insulation value, but serves to keep the siding from waving on longer runs.

The stucco is 1 and 1/2 inches thick with wire lath.

Just to make sure I'm clear on this, your trying to install vinyl siding over stucco?
Far better to remove the stucco and start all the way back to the sheathing wraped in Tyvek.
If no your going to have a night mare with every window and door trim.
Every door and window casing is going to have to be built out and covered with coil stock so the J molding does not stick out past the trim.
