(Is it possible to replace plural nouns mentioned before with “it”? Or shohld I say “one”?)

Please help me understand the rules behind which to use. Thanks:)
A: In this specific case:

It - use this as a pronoun to refer to a specific noun.

Them - use this as a pronoun to refer to the whole group of specific nouns.

One - use this as a pronoun to refer to a nonspecific noun within a group. It doesn’t matter which of the group, you just want one of them.

Those/these ones - use this to refer to a specific group within another group of nouns.

Never replace a plural noun with “it.”
