If the thremostat is not immersed in water, it would not work. If you bleed from the bleeder hole, water would get to the thermostat.
If you AC is not working, skip that part.
If the engine overheats and the radiator and AC fans don't start working, you need to check if they are faulty.
When the engine starts to hunt after starting for a short while, you need to check for blockages in the small hoses connected to the EACV, fast idle and throttle body.
A used radiator is not the problem, if it is clogged, at least it will take some time before it overheats.
