I currently use the normal Tomato version but find it does not support Home Group within Windows 7. If I use TomatoUSB is Home Group supported. I currently use a WRT54GL which I think I would need to use the no usb version.

Home Groups have nothing to do with the router - they are a Windows-box-to-Windows-box construct only and the functionality works just fine with Tomato (or any other router, for that matter).

HomeGroup uses IPv6, but just locally. You don't need a router to support IPv6 for hosts to automatically configure local IPv6 addresses and use them communicate with each other on the LAN — they know how to do that one their own (it's part of the design of IPv6), and traffic between machines on the LAN is ordinarily below the scope of what the router cares about.
Assuming you're not doing anything fancy with VLANs or isolated wireless traffic, HomeGroup should work fine, regardless of whether the router is IPv6-enabled.
