    Hello, i am wanting to setup a backup MX server.

    What is the best way to do this? is there cPanel plugins available? any guides?

    You do not require any cpanel plugin for this.

    cPanel natively has support for this. Read

    When the cPanel server is configured as a "Backup Mail Exchanger", it will hold emails in queue until the primary mail server is available. A server acting as a secondary mail exchanger (MX) will automatically reattempt delivery to the primary mail exchanger.
