Will different types of swordtails breed?

For instance I have three orange female swortails mixed with two (darker orange/redish with black in the rear) male swordtailes. Is there a chance that they will breed? How about 1 black molly and 1 female black molly?

Yep. They sure will. Some people even use Artificial Selection (breeding certain colors/patterns on purpose) to get a uniquely colored and more patterened fish. The swordtails are still swordtails, and the mollies are still mollies. They will breed, breed, breed.

Your swords are all likely just different colours of the same species, so no problems there, and even were they not, most swordtail species will readily interbreed.
