1) Yes. Probably not sensible.
2) Look at the Neil McBride website for circuits. The 250 has regulated supplies; the 180 a smaller conventional supply.
3) Avondale make many products and kits. What particular thing did you have in mind?

If the NAP160 NAP250 compariosn i did years ago is any indication then you would need a pair of regulators and a large higher voltage transformer.

You might well be better off starting from scratch & just building a NAP250 clone.
