To be honest you can really win these games by being pretty nitty. I'm not sure what hands your isolating with, but I would stay away from doing it with some of the suited connectors and A rag hands. Stick with the big broadways and medium-large pocket pairs for the most part if they're limp calling too much. Maybe something like a9s+ a10o+ 99+ KJo K10s+, you can probably add some hands to that based on your opponents or table conditions. If they limp call and fold too much postflop then you should add more hands. With these hands your generally going to be ahead of thier preflop limping ranges, since if they had one up on any of these hands they are probably going to raise these hands: (a10s+ AJo+ 1010+, KQo KJs)
As far as hands your willing to get it in with preflop or the flop, this is very player dependant. Take notes and see what kinds of hands these guys are playing big pots with.
In regards to preflop raise size, I'll typically make it 4x+1bb per limper. If you feel your ahead you want to make it as much as you think they are willing to call,without getting them to fold the worst hand.
