      1. Would it be better to check on the turn to induce a bluff?

      Preflop: I think it's close between a raise and a call. With 67s I would definitely limp behind, with JTs I would definitely raise. If you don't expect to be able to isolate a single opponent (meaning you expect to have 2 or more opponents postflop), you should probably limp along as well cos that would be the main purpose of raising - For isolation.

      Turn: To answer your question, no. At microstakes we don't really have any good reason to slowplay at all. If he has an 8 or a flush, we want to maximize our value. I also doubt that he folds TT here on the Turn. If he has something worse than 8X, that's too bad. You are not gaining much value anyway.
