Betta sorority in tropical tank help?

I have a 60 gallon tropical tank with:
10 neon tetras
2 short finned guppies
2 ballon belly mollies
1 cory cat, I know they should be kept in schools but i don't have luck with them
I'm getting another betta for my divided ten gallon tank but i was thinking, hey, why not try a female in the tropical tank?!
Then eventually start a betta sorority!
Are all these tankmates good? I'm not looking to get anymore tropical fish.
Tomorrow, If I do decide to, I'll get 1 female to put in there to see how it goes then eventually put more.
How do I feed her? Do I feed it the tropical flakes?
Should I do this? Is it safe? If you done the same please post a picture!
It's filtered and heated by the way, it's mixed with live and fake plants.
Any advice and help is appreciated!

I'm not sure about the mollies since I've no experience with them but in my soon to be sorority I have neons, dwarf cory cats and a BN pleco. These guys are all fine since none are fin nippers which is what you want to look out for.
I actually have one of my males in there at the moment and I usually feed him pellets first and then put in flakes/sinking wafer for the other guys in there.
