Zemo, Lukin or Strucker will be Emperor Palpatine. A true, unrepentant villain who drives the Vader's actions, and is ultimately responsible for wrongs done. However, he is less visible.
Crossbones will be a little like Tarkin, in being of comparable station to Vader. But mostly he'll be Bobba Fett, in receiving no true character development and just being intimidating and looking cool, but hopefully he gets to do something interesting.
Zola? I think he'll show in flashbacks.
Your comparisons seem to be right on the money, but I think Zola will show up both in flashbacks and the present in a robotic body.
