Here's an image of my team so I don't have to type it all out: http://i.imgur.com/h8VIHiM.png

This is the run down: I am going to keep Gyarados, Mew and Cohagrigus no matter what. Gyarados is a good setup sweeper, nobody expects a burn, knockoff, defog Mew and Cohagrigus walls physical sweepers for days.

The problem here is Rhyperior, Landorus and Heatran. Landorus I would like to keep because most people expect a physical Landorus and switch in a wall. My Landorus is mixed and always catches people off guard. Rhyperior is a good physical wall but hardly ever does anything noticeable so I'm very willing to part with him, meaning I need some sort of physical wall replacement. My heatran set is a traptran and it occasionally has its uses, but like Rhyperior it doesn't work a majority of the time.

What can I replace Rhyperior, Heatran and MAYBE Landorus with to get better coverage?

While Rhyperior does see use in OU as a Talonflame check, Wash Rotom does that better. It also takes away an unwanted Water weakness:
-Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Will-o-Wisp
-Pain Split/Rest
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Chesto Berry

or
-Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Thunderbolt
-Will-o-Wisp
Nature: Modest
EVs: 228 HP/60 SAtk/220 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Ice)
-Trick
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

Cohagrigus is best played as an offensive Trick Room user. Support sets are better done by Trevenant or Gourgeist, IMO:

Trevenant:
-Horn Leech/Wood Hammer
-Earthquake/Rock Slide
-Will-o-Wisp
-Rest
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/180 Def/76 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Lum Berry
Ability: Natural Cure

or
-Horn Leech
-Shadow Claw/Leech Seed
-Will-o-Wisp
-Protect
Nature: Careful
EVs: 244 HP/16 Def/248 SDef
Item: Sitrus Berry
Ability: Harvest

or
-Substitute
-Leech Seed
-Will-o-Wisp
-Phantom Force
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/180 Def/76 Spe
Item: Sitrus Berry
Ability: Harvest

Gourgeist (Super Size):
-Will-o-Wisp
-Leech Seed
-Seed Bomb
-Shadow Sneak/Protect
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 Def
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Frisk

Goodra also makes a neat Water resist:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Thunderbolt/Sludge Bomb
-Focus Blast/Dragon Tail
Nature: Modest/Quiet
EVs: 248 HP/252 SAtk/8 SDef
Item: Choice Specs/Assault Vest
Ability: Gooey/Sap Sipper

or
-Dragon Pulse
-Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt
-Toxic/Dragon Tail
Nature: Calm/Sassy
EVs: 248 HP/8 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Gooey/Sap Sipper
