Yes that is a good choice for a 65g, you can keep a good selection of corals under that lighting. No, it's not too much; you can probably turn half of them off if not needed though. The rock will benefit from better coralline growth too.

hey half the fun is dreaming it up!

A good choice. Take a look at the Coralife hoods as well. They are a little more reliable in my opinion.
