400watt HPS would do fine, need to figure out ventilation if you use anything other than CFL's tho. Closet will get hot quick espcially with a MH or HPS not cooled and un vented.

3x5x6
Would be wonderful with two 600 HPSs or a single 1000.
Exhaust is always needed, plants like human need fresh air plain and simple.

If ythe OP went with a 3x3x6 then a 400 would do fine.

I recommended only 400 because he said he didn't want to hurt his wallet, So i figured the guy wouldn't go and buy vent equip LOL.

He would have a hard enough time keeping 400watt hps cool than 2x600 or a single 1k unit.

Without an exhaust, there is no need to grow in my opinion.
Unless one planned on using co2, but tha cost is greater than a fan and filter.
And as I said if he wanted a 400, he could make his room smaller to fit better and get better results out of the gate.

A 400 over 15 square foot is a waste.
Just being honest.

That will work during the light period.. But what about dark period.. cant have any light leaks, especially a open door. 

Just something to think about.

Id get yourself a grow tent that will fit in that closet and reduce your space a bit. Then depending on the tent , get the correct lighting and run exhaust from it.

Now im not sure what your talking about building?  Get online and order yourself a inline blower of 200CFM + and some flex hose to go with it.

Oh and if you go with HPS light id get a Cool tube and run a intake line threw that and out. That light is going to be your heat factor. you also want ventilation for fresh air intake.

You're gonna want an inline fan and filter.
Going off the size you stated I'd say at least a 6 inch model.
If you want to start off right add an air cooled hood to the mix, you won't be sorry.
Key things to keep in mind when setting up a room.
Exhaust at least 2 to 3 times larger than the cubic foot of the room.  More is better imo.
Light at least 50 watts per square foot again more is generally better.
Smell this is why a filter in needed. Don't want to go stinking up the neighborhood.
Ossulating fan for inside at plant level for air circulation and this will also help the plants build stronger and healthier stems.

Well if you are only growing for yourself, I'd recommend getting or making a tent smaller than the closet in question.
This would mean smaller fan, filter, and light, which would save you a few hundred in over all exspence.
A 2x3x6 room with 400 watts will turn more than enough for a single persons supply.
But it's all in what you want in the end.

An exhaust would go filter in room duct to hood/tube duct to fan.
You would just make or use a hole near the floor for intake, the exhaust fan will pull air in thru this hole as it exhaust heat out of the room.

7 photo plants? hell even 7 autos still a decent harvest.  So Id say yeah.

you could go with 4 or 5 and still be doing good, but if you got 7 healthy females, don't kill any off, that's just wrong.

I don't like my soil temp to exceed 75 and room temp 79.

I keep my grow room at 66-75 and my soil temps stay about 70-75
