I'd skip the damsel, they get super mean and attack you other fish. I had to remove mine and so has many a reefer...

DO NOT get a damsel you will regret it. Then good luck catching them. I had to drain my tank to get mine out. A mated pair of clowns is always cool to watch. Also I like cardinals too! Always out where you can see them.

See I'm under the impression from my friend that I can't get two clown fish in the same tank?

They will fight a little until one establishes dominance and becomes the male. The other will then become the female. Weird right? They can be either/or. If you get a already mated pair its better. You dont want more than two though.

Got it backwards there clowns are born male and the dominant (usually largest) changes to a female. When purchasing them the best way to do it is get the largest and smallest clowns in the tank but I would hold off on the other fish til your tank stabilizes. I also wouldn't add the Nem unless your tank has been running 4+ months.

I don't think I'd add all that at once. (What size tank?). I'd go with the clown pair first, unless you're planning on one of the more aggressive species. Wait a week or two before adding another fish.

If this is a newly established tank, you should probably wait six months to a year on an anemone. The clowns don't need it, and if they're captive bred are quite likely to ignore it. I've had a pair of captive bred occelaris in my 75 for a couple weeks and neither of them has ever looked at my long tentacle. (Just as well - the anemone has settled at the back of the tank.)

I have never experienced it, but some folks have had the sixline become aggressive with age.
