You can download the ProRes codecs from Apple's website and install them on your system (provided you're running a Mac, if you're on a PC you can't write ProRes files). With GoPro the Cineform codec that they developed was bundled with CC2014 I think. I would assume you could download that as well and install it.

As for Netflix, that's not a codec. You just need to built a preset to the specifications that Netflix requires and encode that. And to be more specific your list above conflates formats, codecs, and presets together. They are different things:

Codec = compression/decompression (such as ProRes, DNxHD, Cineform, JPEG 2000, etc). These can be added to your system via downloads from the codec developers website usually (sometimes these are paid proprietary items)
Format = Quicktime Movie, MXF, WAV
Preset = a predetermined list of settings that combines the format and codec used to create a new derivative file
