most of the listed species im sure will do great as for the catfish im not sure but in reference to your other questions

feeders are good but oscars should have a varied diet consisting only a couple of goldfish feeders as they dont provide the nessesary energy for oscars, earth worms, small shrimp, varied small fish, and cichlid pellets are some foods they can eat

telling male from females is hard as they only have slight differences but usually i beleive the male has more sharper dorsal fins and a narrower head, most people choose pairs by buying several young oscars at once and seeing which ones pair off but this takes time and space

Very good answer.

I can add that oscars will eat just about anything as long as you consider what Full3r said.
