      Would you stack on the flop vs him and just raise or allow him to barrel and stay passive?

      There's no point in raising the Flop as you would mostly isolate yourself vs stronger hands. The fact that he's short makes it a slightly better play, but still calling is by far the best play.

      On the turn, i think a value bet is reasonable. But you need to consider what hands you are targeting. You lose to AA/KK which will often check/call the Turn. You could potentially gain value from TT/99/88. A half pot bet seems more reasonable. Checking back could also be fine; I would definitely check TT back here.
