1 Green sunfish
3-4 Pumpkinseed (and/or possibly Longear/ Dollar sunfish, if I decide to order from Jonahs Aquarium)
1 Shadow Bass
I know the Green and Shadow bass are more aggressive, but if I kept only one of each species, and more of the Pumpkinseed, would that curb the aggression? Also, the fish would be growing up together from the 1-2inches big.
And finally, in most cichlid aquariums people keep dither fish. Are there any native fish that work well for that in sunfish tanks, and does it help them be less aggressive?

I would not be afraid to try the fish you've listed--be sure to start off with similar sized juveniles if you can, and have sufficient decor, plants, etc. to break up line-of-sight and to give the little guys a place to get away from one another. Just be prepared to pull a fish or two to another tank if they start getting picked on. There may be some initial fin damage as they work things out, but just keep an eye on things and hopefully they'll work things out without anyone having to be removed.
