I'd use between 7 and 8 lbs of wheat LME for a 5 gallon batch. 1lb extract yields 36 gravity points. So 7 lbs will give you 7lbs*36 pts / 5 gallons = 50 gravity points per gallon or an OG of 1.050.

though i feel much more informed, now i feel rather lost and wondering if i chose the right ingredients. could i do a partial mash with the munich malt and then use the 3.15# wheat LME? if so, any recommendations?

Just use 6lb of wheat LME. That should give you a normalish ABV hefe. Then you are not sitting around with a partially used jug of LME. I would also skip the Munich.

Another question would be how long would be recommended for time in the fermenter? Rack to secondary? Standard two weeks after bottling before enjoying?

Cheers!

As long as it takes. Take a gravity reading. If it is the same a few days apart, it's done.

I personally let beers ferment for 3 weeks then bottle if they are a normalish OG.

Cool. So what would a normalish OG and FG be? Sorry, I'm a rookie!

The BJCP style guidelines are a good resource for this info. Check this out:
http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style15.php#1a

OG: 1.044-1.052
FG: 1.010-1.014

If you're just outside these guidelines you'll be just fine.

By normalish I mean not high gravity. I don't worry about FG. It is what it is. YOu have to hae your desired FG in mind when you start.
