Which software can I / should I upgrade to on a mid 2011 Mac Mini?
I have a mid 2011 Mac Mini. 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5. I am currently running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 Will the upgrade affect my programs.

It might affect a program or two to be honest, but well worth it. There are a number security updates that need to be in place that you don't have.
Once you upgrade, a number of your apps will upgrade as well, so you'll get a better experience as well.
What I would suggest:
Buy a SSD (your current drive is old)
Backup current drive to TimeMachine
Install new drive, install a fresh macOS
Then restore the rest from TM backup

as jim suggested … security updates are the most critical aspect of the update.
