If you are moving everything move the filter and the fish all at once. Leave the old filter running for 6 weeks or so and you are set. Add other fish slowly. I would add the rams last and the rainbows first, followed by the tetras.

From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.

Well those new fish you want are a bit sensitive, except the rainbows. You should be able to put all the ones from the 20 to the 75 at the same time, but add the new ones slowly. As rich said, the rainbows first and the rams last would be best.
Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)
