Villain plays one table otherwise no read, I assume that villain isnt a very strong player. Did I overplay my hand here as we are so deep? I felt with that overbet he rivered a flush, and his check/call check turn definately made me think he had the draw.

I think CBetting this flop is fine, but I'd definitely make it larger. If you had a value hand, you'd bet 2/3 pot or more, so you should also bet this size with your bluffs.

Once villain calls the flop, checking back the turn is fine as you've got position and you can try realise your hand equity for free.

When villain bets twice the pot on such a wet board, I'd be very wary. While you have a very strong hand, it's nowhere near the nuts. A lot of microstakes players love to slowplay and they end up betting huge on the river when they realise there's no money in the pot. I'd just call this huge bet, but if you really want to raise and try extract value from lower flushes, I'd raise small, probably just minraise and fold to a shove.
