Can 6 months and 18 days round up to a year or can it round down to 0 years?

6 months is not a year and it's not nothing. Why not round it only slightly down to 6 months?

It won't be true rounding if you take the lower value. It would be truncation. 6 months and 18 days is above half so if rounding, requires going to the next highest integer.

Rounding to the closest year, it rounds to 1 year because 6 months, 18 days is more than 1/2 a year.

It depends on how you're rounding, of course. If it's simply to the nearest whole year, then yes. That's 6 months and 18 days from the start of the current year, and about 5 months and 13 or so days from the start of the next year. That interval is about a month closer to one year than it is to zero years.
Don't go into a bar at age 20 years, 6 months, 18 days, and expect the same kind of rounding, though.

That depends on what you're rounding to. Rounding to the nearest year would place it at 1 year. Rounding to the nearest decade would place it at 0 years. Using floor would take it to 0. Using ceiling would take it to 1 year.
