Stuck to the pond wall above water level is a pink cluster of what appears to be eggs.The pond is stocked with goldfish,tadpoles/frogs,and snails.Are these eggs and what might have produced them?

My guess would be the snails. Do you know which type you're keeping?

Yep. That'll be their eggs. They are most likely Pomacea canaliculata(or possibly Pomacea bridgesii). Remove em unless you wish to be overrun.

Will they destroy my floating surface plants?

Don't know what kind of surface plants but if they are canaliculata they are voracious eaters of anything green(or brown). Bridgesii don't eat live plants.
