Okay, Mollies are best with fish that do not have long fins. Yur Kuhli will prefer to be in a group but it isn't "manditory" for it to be healthy. The rubber pleco may get a little large for a 20 high. They also produce a lot of waste. Cherry barbs are okay with any of them as they are one of the more docile barbs just be aware that you may still see some aggression from them.
I would say that by the numbers you are overstocked. If you can, I would acutally recommend another 20 gallon instead of a smaller tank. That way you can put the mollies and the barbs in one tank. The danios can go in another tank with a nice little school of Kuhlis and the tetras. Also, a 20 gallon long will work better for the Rubber pleco so it has more room to roam.
Just remember to cycle the new tank before moving fish to it.
