IMO, Ludicolo should be using Rain Dance so that it can benefit from Swift Swim:
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Giga Drain
-Ice Beam
-Focus Blast/Rain Dance
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Damp Rock
Ability: Swift Swim

Salamence is better off with a Naughty or Naive nature, as Lonely undermines Intimidate a tad. Lum Berry should be the item.

Alakazam is too defensively weak to be using status moves. It's better off all-out attacking:
-Psyshock/Psychic
-Shadow Ball
-Focus Blast
-Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)/Substitute
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash/Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard

Lucario should use 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe as its EV spread. ExtremeSpeed is also preferred over Ice Punch or Crunch, as +2 priority is useful.

Garchomp should also use 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe and a Jolly nature.

Is there a pokemon you recommend for status moves to replace alakazam?

You have a few options there.

Breloom does well, being the only OU user of Spore. Though it'll give you another Fire weakness.

Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Poison Heal
Adamant [+Attack; -Special Attack]
12 HP / 244 Attack / 252 Speed
- Spore
- Substitute
- Focus Punch
- Seed Bomb

Some Specially Defensive Heatran sets have you throwing around Toxic / Will-O-Wisp.

Heatran @ Leftovers
Flash Fire
Calm [+Special Defense; -Attack]
248 HP / 252 Special Defense / 8 Speed
- Lava Plume
- Stealth Rock / Roar
- Protect
- Toxic / Will-O-Wisp

For your team however, I think Jellicent makes a good match.

Jellicent @ Leftovers
Water Absorb
Bold [+Defense; -Attack]
248 HP / 216 Defense / 44 Speed
- Scald / Surf
- Will-O-Wisp / Toxic
- Recover
- Taunt

Jellicent can shut down a lot of common offensive threats in OU, like Jirachi, Heatran, Politoed, and recovery reliant Dragonite -- something your team might have problems with -- and defensive threats like Hippowdon, Blissey, and Forretress.
