I read through everything you listed. My primary concern is the battery cables getting hot. When you try to start the engine, is there a click or anything from the starter?
Also, are you able to turn the engine by hand using a breaker bar and socket on the crankshaft pulley center bolt?
As far as the battery, if the terminals get hot, something is drawing a lot of power. My concern is the engine may have locked.
Let me know if the starter clicks when you try starting it. Also, let me know if you can turn the engine by hand.
