      Well, I bet 1/2 pot on the flop because I was afraid of him folding if I bet more, he called and the turn came, I raised pot size because I was afraid with the queens, but probably this was a mistake ( after this hand I think I would only check and see what he does ), I didn't know what his reraise meant, unfortunately I called (another mistake, I guess), on the river I was stacked. Please, what was the best play here?

      You are right with your points.

      Preflop is fine, on the flop I would bet a little more, maybe like 0.30$ because betting below 1/2 Potsize is a bit low.
      Turn is typical "Way-ahead/Way-behind"-Situation, meaning we have him beat by far or we are drawing thin.
      In such situations the passive play always is the better option.
      So check on the turn and watch your opponent. Against a strong bet you can fold, depending on your impression of the opponent, against smaller bets you can call and plan to call another riverbet.
      With the Ace falling on the river though, I would check/fold the river, because there are not many hands left you can beat which he will bet again here.
