I tried with random moves and I my opponent beat with three Pokemon.. Please help!

Okay, 1, Quick Claws are luck items are basically terrible choices. Secondly Snorlax has an abysmal base 65 special attack, you shouldn't be using Psychic.

I see nothing wrong with Cobalion's set; however you should really list nature's and Ev's, I know you're doing this for mainly items and movesets but we can also help you with them, too! :)

Cobalion could do with either Leftovers or a Life Orb. The latter would be more effective in this case as Cobalion has 3 offensive moves, 2 of which he receives STAB from.

Slowbro should just have leftovers. But, if you want Slowbro to pack a punch you could opt for Choice Specs?

Slowbro @ Choice Specs
Modest (+SpA; -Atk)
Regenerator
252 Hp / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
~ Scald / Surf
~ Psychic / Psyshock
~ Fire Blast
~ Grass Knot / Slack Off

This is one of Slowbro's least used sets, I think. I never really see anyone running this set but it could work if you run it properly. Otherwise you could just stick to Slowbro's standard set which is;

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Bold (+Def; -Atk)
Regenerator
248 Hp / 244 Def / 16 SpA
~ Scald
~ Fire Blast / Psyshock
~ Slack Off
~ Thunder Wave / Toxic

Slowbro makes an excellent physical wall, especially against Fighting attacks. Scald is your reliable STAB that has a nice 30% burn rate. I'd go for Psyshock for your second choice as Roserade doesn't fair to well against it. Slack Off is your reliable recovery move and Thunder Wave / Toxic is there to do what it says. Paralyze/Poison.

Zoroark should be used as a special sweeper holding a Life Orb.

Zoroark @ Life Orb
Timid (+Spe; -Atk)
Illusion
4 Hp / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
~ Night Daze
~ Flamethrower / Grass Knot / Substitute
~ Nasty Plot
~ Focus Blast

Flamethrower is the best option here, ngl.

Lightningrod on Zapdos hasn't been released, and it cannot learn Overheat... Did you mean Heat Wave?

Zapdos has a standard set that it runs well.

Zapdos @ Life Orb
Timid (+Spe; -Atk)
Pressure
4 Hp / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
~ Thunderbolt
~ Heat Wave
~ Hidden Power Ice / Hidden Power Grass
~ Roost

Since dropping to UU Hidden Power Grass would be the better option as people usually switch in Swampert to stop Zapdos in its tracks.

Since you only have 1 physical attacker I highly suggest that you have Snorlax take on an offensive role.

Snorlax @ Leftovers
Careful (+SpD; -SpA)
Thick Fat
188 Hp / 104 Def / 216 SpD
~ Curse
~ Return / Body Slam
~ Crunch / Fire Punch / Earthquake
~ Rest / Selfdestruct

CurseLax is great. It has a huge Hp stat and a brilliant ability. It also has good special defense letting you sponge special based fire and ice moves. It has lackluster defense however Curse more than makes up for that. Boosting your base 110 attack and and 65 defense up to sky high and decent levels respectively. Return if you want power, Body Slam has reduced power but 30% of paralysis, it's your call. Sleep mechanics of this gen kinda screw over Rest. You could always just use one of the two you didn't pick for the 4th slot.

To add to what Dragonomega said about Cobalion, its set is more for utility than for all-out offense. Over Iron Head, Toxic or HP Ice should be used (the former for crippling other walls and the latter for dealing with Flygon and Roserade, though Cobalion must use a Naive nature).

Is it safe to say this is the quote un-quote "best" IV spread for my HP Ice Landorus?

IV's: 30 HP - 31 Atk - 30 Def - 31 SpD - 31 SpA - 31 Spe

Landorus @ Choice Scarf
Sand Force - EV: 252 Atk, 4 SpA, 252 Spe
Earthquake
Stone Edge
U-turn
HP Ice

A very offensive pokemon I figured, whose tiny loss of bulk would largely be OK when compared to sacrifices in speed to lose ties or weakened offensive capabilities.

Yes, this IV spread is viable for a HP Ice Landorus. The imperfect HP and Defense IVs aren't much of a concern.
