First, you don't want any of the gourami's that get over three inches. Too big unless it's alone in the tank.
Next...well, most will get along with those types of fish. However, it does depend a lot on both your gourami, and your ram. Some wont get along. I had a pair of three-spots with a pair of German Blue rams(I do not recommend three-spots or pearls for a twenty gallon unless kept without other fish, any gourami that can hit four or more inches needs 30+ gallons for a community or pair), platies, swordtails and mollies in a 55 gallon tank. Never had an issue with them. Depends on the size of the fish, the temperament, and space. How many platies do you have? More than four or so and it's probably pushing it...you may be able to get away with a dwarf or honey gourami though! =) They tend to be pretty peaceful...however often don't get along with other gouramis. Provided they don't mistake the ram for another gourami, or the ram mistakes them for an intruder, should be ok. Especially if you have a lot of hiding places in the tank. The more secure they feel, the less likely problems will be to occur.
