    Each plugin can do a part of what you need, but even all together your needs are way more complex than what off-the-shelf plugins can handle.  What's going to happen based on that report is you will be running into structural issues with users and their relationships to other users.  Instead of plugins, I would throw resources into customizing WordPress until it works the way you want it to work.  I would also take a second look at Drupal.  It's much harder to get going in Drupal but the structure of the CMS and users is vastly different than WordPress and, in your case, it might be the more appropriate solution.
