My current pot in the image is definitely too big for my peace lily (pot is 9.5x9.5). Could I repot the plant to a 6.5x6.5 planter without ruining it? The larger pot doesn't have any drainage and the soil is staying wet for too long and I'm worried about root rot.

I think you should downsize it. Don't 'wash' the roots or mess with them a lot. I like plastic pots better, but if the new pot is also clay, you can still set that inside the pretty blue one, maybe a few rocks to bring it up to level and make sure it doesn't sit in a puddle after you water it.
Plant it and they will come.
