the tang will not bother the anemone, and vica-versa. Stick with two clowns, preferablly a mated pair from the LFS. Be cautious with the copperband. They are difficult fish to feed and many do not survive.

Like I said, two clowns max. they should be male/female of the same species. Introducing a third would cause some agression issues. You have lots of other choices for fish. It will depend if you want corals in the future. For now, dwarf angels are nice...flames or coral beauties, or a lemonpeel. royal grama, purple firefish or some type of wrasse (like a sixline) would also be nice.

All are reef-safe excpet for the dwarf angels. They are a gamble...some will no touch corals while others are nippers.

No...crabs, snails and shrimp do not require special lighting at all.

ok

what type of lighting would you recomend for this setup? does the lighting come with a cover or do they have to be purchased seperately?

It depends ( I love that answer). If you are looking at a FOWLR tank then NO flouesent will be just fine. You do need to purchase a glass cover for your tank if you have no way to elevate the light fixture off of the surface. Many people run "topless" tanks for a variety of reasons but, like I said, make sure your fixture is off the surface of the water by several inches.

would high power flouresents be fine for the corals that require less light?

does a topless tank lose water faster? do you know of a website i could look at glass covers?
