I am surprised that you know about EVs, yet not about natures.

Make Starmie hold Shell Bell.
Salamence is best with Modest Nature with that moveset.

Nature: Adamant
-Brick Break
-Megahorn
-Earthquake
-Facade

Groundon@Leftovers
Trait: Drought
Nature: Careful
-Earthquake
-Bulk Up
-Fireblast
-Ancient Power

Slaking@Choice Band
Trait: Truant
EVs: 252 Att, 252 Speed
Nature: Adament
-Hyperbeam/Return
-Focus Punch/Brick Break
-Shadow Ball
-Aerial Ace

For the last slot, the Pokémons you have suggested won't give much benefit to your team. They are basically special/physical sweepers, which you already have in abundance. Attempt in getting a few defensive Pokémons such as Milotic, Regice, Weezing or Dusclops.

The only problem is i no longer have the TM for aerial ace, and i dont think i can chain breed it. Any sugesstions for the fourth move for Slaking?

Try the following chain:
Taillow (Lv. 34) -> Wingull -> Psyduck -> Slakoth
