Those you have outline do make sense. I would say you have over looked JEB Stuart and Bragg who both can do credible jobs.
Pemberton is worthy of a 5th/6th Army as he is good to guard the coast.
But so much depends upon whether you are a player who always takes the offensive or mainly takes the defensive. For instance, A S Johnston is very good offensively, but not so much defensively. How are you deploying R E Lee? His command span is so great he may be able to manage your weaker Corps commanders to good effect allowing Jackson and Longstreet independent army command.
I do try to get Cleburne and Richard Taylor at least to corps level. Taylor was a talented general and is recognized as such in the game. He enters late, so gaining promotions are a challenge.
