I recognize "half" of them (Nova-Prime, Protector), but I was wondering if anyone could link me to some bios on all or any of them? Any help would be appreciated.

The group were known loosely as the Champions of Xandar, an alliance formed to defend the planet Xandar against invasion from the skrulls. They appeared at the end of Nova's 1st run, and the story continued in a few issues of Fantastic Four vol 1. They're last appaearance was shown in an issue of Rom, where it was explained how most of the group died betrayed by former member Diamondhead.
The members pictured in a clockwise direction are :
