Which meds do I need

I ordered the following meds: Pimafix, Melafix, ParaGuard, Kanaplex, Metroplex, Focus, GarlicGuard, General Cure, Erythromycin, Rid-Ich Plus, and Aquarium Salt. Out of all these, which ones are good and which ones do I not really need and which ones are duplicates or overlap?

You really dont need most of that.
General cure for quarantine
Furan 2
Kanaplex
I like kordon rid ich
The melafix and Pima fix are utterly useless. No wonder your mom pulled a nutty, that's a Lotta dough

I would strongly suggest to quarantine first. Anything made by Seachem is a really good product, so I would include Parguard on the keep list. I always have that on me.

I would quarantine if I had the space to put another tank or tote, but I don't.

I do not medicate any fish. Not a popular stance but I just dont. Never have.

I read that ParaGuard treats many of the same external parasites as other meds do so if I keep just ParaGuard and maybe Rid-Ich Plus on hand, will that be enough/all I need? Also, what medicine(s) should I get to treat internal parasites?

Columnaris is the real.bad one that can wipe a tank fast, if you're going to stock up than the Furan 2 and kanaplex should be in. You can get medicated food for the internal parasites. Peabodysparadise has it and nls makes one too.

I like PraziPro. If you have medicated food, you don't need it.

I'm of the "I'll buy it if I need it," philosophy. We have Amazon prime, so whatever we order will get to us in two days if local places don't have it.

All medications are condition specific.
