Yes in my view, but only one pair of rams. Two mated pairs would be interesting but you would need good territory division especially if intending to have a spawning, plus I'm not sure the pair of angels with two pairs of rams would not be pushing things in the same space. All of these cichlids are just that, cichlids; not particularly rough species, but still cichlids.
Territory division means having suitably-sized spaces separated by plants, wood or even rocks from which the fish can't see each other. They will work to defend their territories constantly if they see others, and they need some relaxation.
You previously asked about caves and I missed that; rams spawn on the substrate using flat stones. I've not used caves, just had the tank divided as above, and they chose their site.
