+1 your tank is a little small, gourami's should be in a 10G minimum IMO

There are always exceptions, but generally the most probable outcome is no they wont get along. You can try it anyway, but overall it probably wont be a positive outcome.
I think DGs are too big for 5gs, but bettas and platties will probably get along better. Mine always did, maybe the platy would occasionally nip the bettas fins
