Villain is 18/9/2.5 over 175 hands. Is this line ok, what about bet sizing, too much preflop?

Looks ok to me. I like the 6x 3-bet with two callers.

preflop's fine if you think you'll get a caller for that much, and it's 5NL, so that's likely. postflop i play it the same

I think that it would be better to bet on the flop, to find out where you are. I would bet around half of the pot and then check/fold.

The stacks are deep plus this is a very obvious WA/WB situation. Checking the flop back is pretty much a given, imo.

Yep, pf is fine, and postflop is standard wa/wb. I play it exactly the same.
