You did not inform what are the currents required. The 7805 will become hot only if the current is high, for low currents a heatsink attached to it could be the solution (and cheapest).
I suggest you to use a LM2976-5.0 switching regulator, with the 18Vdc input and regulating to 5Vdc on the output. You need only as additional (...)
