Looks like Portulacaria afra variegated

RE: Need to Identify this succulent

Correctamundo! I would trim off those lower branches and allow cuts to heal before attempting to root. The roots of this plant will emerge from the cut end, not from the trunk nodes like Jades. The variegated form is also a slower grower and will be happier in a semi-shady spot, outside.
