When outside temp is hot and I drive steep or slow uphill roads. Car overheats and A/C stops working.

Check the thermostat and both cooling fans if its working properly-start here

If thermostat was broken, would it only overheat during the hot months? Would it not overheat all the time?

When the thermostat is stuck closed no matter if its winter, spring, summer or fall the engine will overheat-for good measures-replace it and go from there
