Angelfish need a shoal, unless you have a mated pair, so unfortunately they won't work in your 30 gallon tank unless you acquire a pair, and are willing to accommodate them and their needs/potential to be very aggressive to tank mates. in fact all i would include with a mated pair in 30 gallons is bottom feeders. and most would say to keep the pair alone.
As for a cichlid tank, (actually angelfish are a type of cichlid but I know you are talking about something else), you probably can't do a group of the very popular large Africans, but potentially you could putsome dwarf cichlids in 30 gallons.
As for your community tank idea, not sure id include all of those fish. like i said about angels, you can't have just one. so that idea would be best put aside. as for the rams, i don't know a lot about these little cichlids, but therr are several users who do. the barbs, i also don't know a lot about but i don't think they'd do well in 30 gallons. they are active little guys. as for tetras, id recommend picking one speicies and adding 8-15 of them (smaller varieties you could add a couple more I'm sure). Most cories would do just fine in 30 gallons.
Hopefully someone will come in and help with the fish i don't know about . regardless of what you choose though, almost any fish enjoys live plants as part of their environment :)
