Is there now way to hypo my main tank? Imin a bit of pinch here....the only tank i have available for QT is a 25g tall hex. I also do not have a filter or heater for it.

EDIT: Ok imcleaning and setting up the hex for a QT. Im going to buy a heater...

Edit: Ok...now no fish have signs of ich? Should I just QT the clowns?

It is common for the ich to appear to have subsided, and indeed the symptoms may be gone. However the cycle of the parasite continues. You should QT the fish, potentially all of them for a period of about 4 weeks or more. Please read the following link. Your particular case seems to be in the Tomont phase. Be aware that it is almost a given that these parasites will come back many times worse if not headed off now.

I have the clowns in the QT.

I cant seem to catch the angelor chromis, not even with the DIY trap.

I do have the Kent Marine copper free treatment but im hesitant to use it in the main tank, especially with the inverts in there.

Can a human get ick from handling the water?

No your BTA can not host the ick It will be OK to leave everything in your tank but the fish . QT them and treat. Leave main fishless for 8 weeks and the cycle will die. Hypo is the way to go in QT

No, Hypo will kill your inverts and corals and any life on your LR.
