Since the engine temperature is normal but the transmission is overheating it really sounds like the transmission fluid is the problem. This fluid is the only means of cooling (other than air flow) for the transmission. As George has said, check the level and the condition of the fluid then blow air through the disconnected coolant lines.

As for the problems with the dash display, this is probably the batteries on the main circuit board. Search the archives for the detailed replacement technique. The buzzing in the dash is normal. This is noise from the small servo motors returning the vents to their default positions.
