Can I use Yongnuo YN-560 II Speedlights with a 600 ST-E3-RT system?

Nope, TTL accessories only work within a manufacturer, and a technology.  There isn't a 3rd party setup that works with the Canon RF technology.

If I used a Pocket Wizard system would they all be compatible together? Or would that just mean having to buy a bunch of transmitters and not be worth it anyway?

I was in a similar position and went with the st-e3 and 600ex to start. Then added 3 more 600ex. I use the Foursquare setup and a parabolic outdoors and it does a great job in daylight. The High Speed Sync built into this setup works very well and is what allows for beautiful fill during bright daylight. This setup is also flexible in that you can take 1+ flashes off the Foursquare and have a multiple light setup with Manfrotto clamps or Gorillapods (both lightweight). With your setup (5d3 and 600ex) you won't need Pocket Wizards unless you start using portable strobes like Elinchrom Ranger RX and need the HSS.

I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on a set of PocketWizards to use with my two 430EX IIs and my 530EX II, but instead went with the Yongnuo YN-622C, and I love them.  I haven't had any misfires with them, and they support wireless TTL.  I'm really happy that I didn't spend the extra money on the PW setup.
