I understand what you are trying to do, but i don't think it is a great idea.
You need to raise preflop. Pop it to maybe around 50. UTG will probably call for sure, idk about button but based on your description he probably will. AA is a hand that you are going for value when you 3-bet and 4-bet, and this is definatley a value spot. Also, idk the table dynamics but, as you dont want a limp-fest, a 3-bet from you will get WAY more respect than his open.
On the flop, i really don't mind just a flat, although honestly I always fast play aces. If the guys are there to gamble, i wouldn't even worry about drawing odds against 2 hearts.
On the turn, you pick up a wheel draw, i'm fine with getting it in here against two lagtards. I would expect to see overplayed AJ or KJ, or probably 2 hearts. It is a spot that i expect to be way ahead in.
Button bets $35
Hero goes all in $35 + $180
Is attempting to trap two maniacs the right play here? Would you slowplay in this situation.
A few thoughts; Do you think your hand is the best here when called more than 50% of the time? When its called by both players? I think you played this hand very dangerously. If you plan is to trap, I think you take away their bluffs when you jam the river yourself. Your bet sizing is actually polarizing on the turn to 2 pair or better [mostly sets] - this is like turning aces into a bluff. While they may be borderline maniacs, are they really going to call a polarized bet with a worse hand more than 50% of the time?
