Host IP Address: 156.63.18.7
Network Mask: 255.255.0.0

If I convert 255.255.0.0 to notation it would be 156.63.18.7/16
because 255 equals 11111111.

right?

If you're asking 255.255.0.0 is the same as /16, then the answer is yes.

another few:
255.0.0.0 = /8
255.255.0.0 = /16
255.255.255.0 = /24
255.255.255.255 = /32
