NOTE - I do not want to replace any of my Pokemon except maybe Jumpluff.
I also would like some moveset suggestions too especially on Jumpluff and Ampharos.

You don't really need items ingame, you can get along fine without them
berrys work every time, you could get attack boosting items, i mean; just experiment, you will find a great combo eventually
ps: the best way to look at is what your pokemon suffers from most and try find a convenient item that works for your pokemon.
good advise. I try to stay away from disposable items though because its just a pain to replace them after each battle.

Best answer

I'm not amazing with suggestions, but these would work well in my opinion:

Arcanine: The Life Orb would be good for this, as it seems to be built to hit hard and fast.
You should probably run Flare Blitz over Heat Wave, and Iron Head or Crunch over Dragon Pulse.

Typhlosion: This should probably have a Choice Scarf (or Specs) to give it a boost. You should probably run Extrasensory (or Hidden Power Grass, if possible.) over Earthquake so it's fully special.

Togekiss: This should hold the Leftovers, so it can regain some HP each turn. Or maybe an Expert Belt for increased SE damage. Also, run Flamethrower or Shadow Ball over Hyper Beam.

Vaporeon: Vapor should hold the Leftovers so it can regain HP each turn as it's a Bulky Pokémon. Run Ice Beam over Blizzard, and use Protect or Toxic over Waterfall.

Ampharos: Ampha's a Bulky Pokémon, so it should probably have the Leftovers. Or maybe the Wise Glasses to increase it's Special Moves. You should probably have Thunder Wave or Focus Blast over Iron Tail.

Jumpluff: If you're alright with replacing this Cottonpuff, then maybe use Breloom instead? Breloom's a good Physical Attacker (which the team is lacking), and also a Grass type.
It should probably have: Spore, Brick Break / Drain Punch, Swords Dance, and Seed Bomb. Make it hold the Focus Sash as Breloom is frail and needs to at least get a Spore off on something.

If these items are too hard to get, you can use any of these on your team:

-Type effectiveness Berries
They aren't that good, but they might let one of your team members live a hit they may not live without it.

-Sitrus / Lum Berry
The Sitrus Berry is actually a good item in actual competitive too, so this isn't a bad idea, as your Pokémon may need a HP boost. The Lum Berry is just in case of Pokémon that like to inflict Statuses.

-Quick Claw
This is a good item for any slow Pokémon (like Vaporeon and Ampharos) to use so they can maybe hit first and KO something.

-The Elemental Plates
These generally aren't the best, but they're decent if you can't get anything better.

Hope I helped in some way!~

good idea with Breloom! Where can I find a Shroomish in HG?
I had a quick claw on my Arcanine but took it off to look for another item since it already goes before alot of stuff anyway.
(mostly because its been about 15 levels higher than everybody else ingame. that being said its speed stat is not the greatest.)
Shroomish can be found in Viridian Forest.
Thanks.  What ability is good on it? Ive never raised one before.
Poison Heal is generally the best ability for a Breloom. But either of it's abilities can be used decently.
