Ilike damsels an was considering one for my tank but instead I got a 6 line wrasse.

You start adding coral, make sure your light is up to it. Also start out with a fairly easy coral such as a pulsing xena, mushrooms, or a green star polyp so you can get into the swing of things with the coral

Do you think the damsels would be ok as long as i keep a little bit larger or active fish?
what corals will reproduce and cover my tank faster?

Damsels don't care how big the fish are, they are just plain old mean and love their territory.
Corals that grow like weeds:
Green Star Polyps
Xenia
Kenya Tree
Colt Coral
Palys

I would wait until your tank is up and running like at least 6 months for it to mature a bit then consider starfish.

Then research starfish throughly, some like chocolate chip starship are not the best for reefs. I think serpent stars could work or a sand shifter if you have a deep sand bed

Sand sifters always starve to death. Serpents and brittle stars are the best stars under normal situations. Most other reef safe stars are fromia's, which have a high mortality rate in the home aquarium.

They wouldn't have much of an effect unless you end up with a ton of food and poop built up around the rocks.
