I just can't get this right --- Jean and I are friends

Whatever I choose its wrong so there's some weird little French nuance going on … in English you could say ' You are friends' or 'They are friends'

Even in English you would never to "John and I" say "they". Actually, in French it is just the same as in English. You get this lesson practically "for free".

Jean and I are friends = We are friends. -- Nous sommes des amis.
Jean and you are friends = You are friends. -- Vous êtes des amis.
Jean and Paul are friends = They are friends. -- Ils sont amis.
