I have Melanochromis auratus (Golden Mbuna), Maylandia estherae (Red Zebra Cichlid) and Socolofi cichlids with lots of rocks and hiding places.

Is it ok to keep Dollars with them since i need to move them from my "O" tank.

Its a 65 US gallon tank.

I advise against it

Not the best idea. The auratus are pretty nasty even to other aggressive fish. The SDs will likely lose all their fins if they live that long. Not really the best water condition match either. The Mbuna will show their colors much better in very hard high ph water.
