Last time I saw my opponent push all-in versus me he had TP and medium kicker calling a 3BB PR (but donked my $5 with a paired board on river).
No extensive reads or reads on PF play.

So what would you do here?

I think you have to fold here. He led with a pot-sized bet into 2 players, including the pre-flop raiser, so he is less likely to be bluffing, and your stack is too deep to like calling an all-in 3-bet like that. There are no draws, so my guess is that he has a set or AJ.

I have to say I'm not a big fan of either the pre-flop or the flop raise.

Pre-flop, in early position I might overlimp at a loose-passive table. If I flop top pair, maybe I can get some donk to call down with a worse pair; if not maybe I can steal a small pot that no one wants after the flop. Also, I am deep enough that I have huge implied odds if I flop a big hand or draw. Raising here only bloats the pot when you have a few players with position on you left to act, and most of the hands that call you will have you beat, if not crushed. If I were going to raise, it would be because (a) I think Silverado is a total fish who is limping UTG with garbage and (b) I am pretty sure that everyone behind me will fold. I would raise to .25 for the opportunity to go heads up in position with a fish. Your raise is so small that you are really inviting calls.

As for the flop raise, I don't think it would fold AJ. If your opponent is trying to push you off with air or a smaller pair, a raise will probably make him fold, which you don't want. I would call the flop bet and reevaluate on the turn.

I don't mind the preflop raise with KJs as it is still a top 10 hand. But his all-in overbet is representing a lot of strength that I don't think is worth the risk with just top pair. Maybe his overbet is a bluff but then on the other hand the vast majority of the time I think he probably has you beat here, easy fold in my opinion.

preflop is terrible, atleast raise to .25c, or fold playing a pot with 5-6 ppl oop with KJ is going to burn money.

As is call based on read, readless you have 2 options a) call this one for information on future shoves, b) fold this time call next time
