Situation: Two Silver lined umbrellas for 30 person group shot. (three rows team type shot)

Q: Are speed lights sufficient for this scenario?

If you can handle higher ISO settings -- say 1200 to 1600. Which is not a problem with many current cameras.

Q: What is the largest umbrella a Godox TT600 can fill?

I'll say 30 inches, give or take.

Q: What is the largest umbrella a Godox AD200 can fill?

With a bare tube there's no real limit to umbrella or softbox size, but the larger the umbrella the more the light is spread and again you can be pushed into high ISO. For your purposes I'll say around 30 inches is a decent size, but you can work at about half the ISO required for speedlights.
