The PS Plus and PS Now subscription stacking prior to the rollout of new services has finally been addressed by Sony.

How the PS Now to PS Plus conversion actually works
Avid Beaver struggled to buy as many PS Now memberships as possible after reading the first comment about the conversion of PS Now subscriptions to PS Plus Premium. Due to the price difference, it was thought that when the conversion was performed, the stacked subs would be converted for an equivalent period.
Therefore, a 12-month PS Now subscription priced at $ 59.99 / £ 49.99 will be converted to a 12-month PSPlus Premium membership. The top tier of the new PS Plus plan costs $ 119.99 / £ 99.99, saving you 50%.
However, Sony’s workaround depends on the monetary value of the subscription, not the duration. Therefore, the email notifying the customer that the prepaid stack subscription will be respected will continue to apply. You can get a complete breakdown in the chart above.
