One common reason for the gears sticking is incorect oil type, motorcycles have wet clutch and specific motorcycle oil must be used, otherwise the clutch drags and gears are hard to shift.Aside from any major problems with the transmission itself, is your clutch working properly? Is it set correctly and fully disengaged when it is not being used. I would start here. You may need new plates in your clutch itself.

Can a motbike have 18 gears?

I can't really know what you mean by "motbike", but I'm guessing you mean "motorcycle", an engine powered two-wheeled vehicle. In which case I've never heard of a motorcycle with 18 gears. If you're stubborn enough you could certainly build one, but it'd wouldn't be an improvement. Or maybe you mean "mountainbike", human-powered pushbike. In which case it can certainly have 18 gears, or even more.
