The problem is you could have SIGNIFICANT levels of ammoina in the tank due to the dieoff on the rock. This ammonia can easily become well above the limit where the damsels will be able to survive.

If you where willing to do daily water changes of 30-50% then you MIGHT be able to keep them in the same tank of the live rock but thats alot of water to be going thru given that it could take weeks to get the live rock to a point where it is no longer producing vast amounts of ammoina.

doubtful. the damsels probably wouldnt make it through that kind of ammonia surge, even though they are really tough. what size tank do you have. you might want to consider taking the damsels back because they might fill up your fish load making it tough to put any other fish in.

General rule is 1" of fish per 5 gal of water capacty. So a 55 gal would give you 11" of fish at ADULT size.

so with five damsels. you probably already have 5 inches of fish. that only leaves 6 inches. thats not alot of room to work with.

unless, of course, you are a fan of damsels and plan on them being a part of your tank once it is fully stocked. sometimes i forget that there are people who really like damsels.
