For a 4 feet tank with 18 inches height, 8 angelfish will fit in already. 6 will if there are other fish available.
Joe, I'd say for tetras, you choose deep-bodied ones like the diamond tetras(Moenkhausia pittieri). Slim-bodied ones like neons risk being eaten once the angels reach adult size.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Measurements aren't that accurate.
Joe, if I adjust your stocking plan, here's the outcome:
8 Harlequin Rasboras
8 Diamond Tetras
8 Bleeding Hearts
3 Angelfish
2 Honey Gourami(pair)
10 pencilfish

8 is more preferable than 6. Of course, it's better to stock in this way: more numbers, less species than more species, less numbers.

You don't have bottom dwellers yet?
Choices:
Bristlenose
Otos
Sterbai cories(Katherine73 will love you for this)

Yes, you can. Consider that the tetras are just 2 inches in size and another thing, they don't poo too much(which I'll throw the goldfish to the bin).
