Done a search but nothing useful came up.

Currently on an 18 inch Kona frame. Being 6 foot exactly, would a 16 inch Kona frame be too small? I really love the look of smaller frames, but I don't want to compromise comfort for the look.

I have my seat post extending out the seat tube by about 6 inches, would I just need to extend it by another couple of inches to make it the same height as now, or does it not work like that?

lenght of the top tube might be an issue .

I would say that 18 is the right size for you .

Agreed - 16 too small for sure.

Checked on the Kona sizing chart which lists an 18" Kona frame as the smallest for a 6 footer.
