So if the dribbler is going down court, can three of his team mates form a line alongside of him as screeners and keep the defense from getting to the dribbler as he goes in for a lay up? They are moving screens and there is no contact. Is that legal?

Yes. You can't have a personal foul without contact. With contact, you're into screening principles to make the correct call. Don't forget also that every player on the floor is legally allowed to establish a straight line path.
