retro insulation

My home was built in southern California in 1945.
It has a stucco exterior with no wall insulation. What
type of insulation would you recommend? I have heard a
problem with most blown in insulation is that it settles
over time. What about spray foams? Do I need to be
concerned with a moisture barrier? There is a layer of
tar paper under the existing stucco. Would this act as
a sufficient moisture barrier?
