I have repotted the Pachypodium brevicaule

And here is the Pachypodium horombense with the
Euphorbia -- other than the smaller container for the
Pachypodium is there a reason to move the plant or
should I consider adding another succulent.

The container for the brevicaule is still too big. How much of that space do the roots fill? I'm guessing a 4-5 inch pot (internal diameter) would be appropriate, but try to scale it based on the roots.

I would move the second Pachypodium to a smaller pot as well, unless you plan to put another 5 similar (compatible) plants that size in the same bowl.

That is more or less my plan is to find a compatible succulent to add to that
bowl. Do you have any suggestions??

And that is about the smallest terra cotta pot I have at this time so I will just
have to be very careful about watering that Pachypodium brevicaule as it is the
only plant that will be in that pot until it gets much bigger/

Whatever you add should like a lot of regular water during the summer and much less water during winter. Most Pachypodiums, most Adeniums, and some Euphorbias from Madagascar tend to fall into this category. Your average aloe, agave, or Echeveria will not. If you want to mention some possibilities I can try to assess the requirements of individual plants.

Well, it might be nice to see what Euphorbia from Madagascar are available and I will
hope they stay relatively small so they will go into the bowl conveniently and compatibly
I guess I need to look at Euphorbia from Madagascar

I am going to add what I know about my favorite vendors. Would any of these work?
I left out all of the Echeveria
Mountain Crest Gardens has these plants available:
what is a Crassula x perforata
Crassula 'Springtime' (a cultivar of rupestris)
Haworthia coarctata f. greenii
Crassula congesta
what is a Pachyveria 'Noel'
what is a Pachyveria 'Haagei
Haworthia limifolia var. ubomboensis

Planet Desert:
Haworthia truncate var maughanii
Haworthia veneosa tessellate
Parodia penicillate
Euphorbia viguieri ankarafantsiensis
Adenia glauca
Mediolobivia rosalviflora pygmaea

OK consider the above plants for my other bowls as I have now put my Pachypodium succulentum griquense in the
bowl with the Pachypodium morombense and the Euphorbia viguieri capuroniana

Now I just need plants for the other bowls in the gardens
