On your light always go with for veg 18/6.. I run my shit from 4pm to 10am. helps avoid the hottest part of the day.

On yield its all about the spectrum of light.. you can bloom a plant with your CFL in a 12/12 cycle. I did it once with a 400watt Metal Halide . The nutrients I used were fish emulsion(Fish Shit)and miracle grow organic soil. my plant reached right about 2.5 foot.. and needless to say my yield Sucked ass.. I only harvested about 6 grams. That 32 watt is gonna produce about 2100 lumens I think.

if you could get a few pics man that would be awesome to try and help you out more.. Im just giving you info from my own experience. Ill do my best and try to help.

Always use 18/6? nonsense, I've done 24/0, 20/4, 22/2, 21/3, 17/7 etc.  You can do anything you want as long as they get at least a couple hours of dark.  Well hell, I've got some clones now that haven't had a dark period in 2 weeks and they're doing great.

yield is NOT all about spectrum of light, it's all about intensity. give me a 250W Metal halide and I promise I can get an ounce. If you're looking to maximize yield, then maximize the wattage. Of course having a more yellow/red spectrum will be beneficial but it's far from the most important thing.

Is there an optimum number like 22-2 or 20-4 or 18-6?

anything between 18/6 and 22/2 will be fine. LIke I said I've experimented with pretty much any lighting schedules you can use and I haven't really noticed a significant difference. once you get below 18 hrs of light you'll notice some extra internodal stretch but they'll still grow great

I like 24/0 for veg. They don't NEED the dark period really.

For what it's worth, in my nooby opinion, I think for the veg 65w will be fine. Just keep the light close to avoid stretching.

I vegged mine under a single 23watt and I've seen decent results.
