I want to know if some pseudotropheus scofoli would be able to coexist with my haps and some peacocks. I've heard that scofoli is less agressive than Zebras.

that's good....I wish I had a 266 gallon tank, but mine's only 90g.
I had some peacocks and bumble bees and now I only have one peacock and alot of bumble bees that I'm going to get rid of

Give them plenty of places to hide is the key. 90g is a good size tank.

individual fish can vary, but my two scolofi are the meanest mbuna I've kept, and I've kept about 20 mbuna or so. Those two have killed off several other species that were much larger in size than they are.

I don't think keeping haps with mbuna is a good idea. My haps always end up getting bullied and harassed too much by the mbuna, even in my 200g.

You can always try it, but I wouldn't be expecting great results. And don't think for a moment that scolofi are any less aggressive than any other mbuna species. The only relatively mellow mbuna I know of are yellow labs. I'd be more inclined to try keeping yellow labs + haps together, if you want mbuna and haps.
