From community to aggressive cichlids

I currently have a 90 gallon community tank.

In the next couple weeks im going to switch it to a cichlid tank. Im unfamiliar with cichlids but i kno that i may want a jack dempsey, a severem or 2, and maybe a parrot cichlid. Is this possible???

Also can i put silver dollar fish with any of these cichlids???

I like this. Should be fine. The jack is a beater though so be careful. Give him a cave or a "planted" area for him to hang out in and he should be fine. It would also help if he is smaller than the others.

Would about 6 or 7 silver dollars be fine with a jack??

You may be able to get 2 in a 90 but would be looking at about 2 50% water changes a week

Personally, I liked your first idea a lot better. With the tiger oscars, you can only have one, MAYBE two with a whole bunch of work as mike pointed out with no other fish.

I'm not sure how many silver dollars you could put but you could always add them slowly and keep a close eye on your water levels so you know when you are stocked.
