I have been a manager of a small family owned restaurant for the past 7 years and I am currently in the works of taking over 100% of the ownership. If I were to become the owner I would basically do much more work than what the current owners, and this would result in several full time employees not being required by me. Since we are all "at-will" employees, can I make any changes I want in terms of employees hours, vacation time, health benefits?

You have to comply with California's labor law and industrial wage orders, regardless of what you call your employees.
California labor law does allow changes in hours, pay, benefits, etc., so long as they are not retroactive and so long as certain legal criteria are met, such as the minimum wage, length of shift, rest periods, etc.
