Why is my PT Cruiser overheating?

A couple of weeks ago my air starts to turn hot. I was thinking that it needed more freon in it so I added some and the problem stayed the same. Then my battery suddenly went out. Once I got it charge to take it to a mechanic, my car began to run hot that I could not take it out of my apartment complex because it would rise so quickly to the red. I've added antifreeze so now it will rise half way and go no further. I really need some help because I have no idea what to do!

Do you
have the same problem?

Is that a mechanic's job or can I do that myself?
