The sockets will be fine. The stock is 55w and 65w will not be too much on the setup. You will gain about 400 lumens of light more. The 9005 will burn out faster than the 9006, but it should last for atleast a year if not longer.

If you start to go higher than 65w you may want to get a wire harnes that will allow the power to come from the battery instead of the switch. Trust me, you don't wantto have your switch go out. This can be expensive to diagnosis and replace.
