Upgrading from 72 bowfront to 120 gallon. Current stocking is 14 juveniles community tank. Want to know if this is too many for new tank or maybe add 3-4 more? I have 2 red zebras but all the others are individual fish.

How long is the 120G?

The fish in your signature will be a challenge even in a longer tank. Some are big and others are aggressive.

Normally I like 12 adults that mature <= 6 inches for an all male tank in 48".

Your borleyi will mature at 8" and some of your others are 7". I would try for a year or two with the fish you have and see what happens.

I would expect the haps and peacocks to be stressed by the aggressive mbuna, but see what happens.
