Not so much about whether fish will fit ,but rather about waste created and parameter's between water changes. What are nitrAte levels between weekly water change? (need to be no higher than 20 ppm).
The tetras,barbs,and platy's prefer cooler water than the mollies and Angelfish who are quite happy at 80 to 82 degrees F .While the tetras ,barbs ,and platy's will thrive at much cooler temp between 74 and 76 (high side)degrees F.
I personally would not add any more fish especially if female livebearer's are present, they can multiply quickly. Is what they do , and then,,your tank will be overun with fry.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
