Engine stalling and not cranking until jumped indicates a fault with the charging system.
The fuse is for the alternator and not the starter therefore replacing the fuse box should solve the problem.
When terminals overheats, the most common cause would be improper tightening resulting in loose contact and heat build up. Over time the terminals would melt the plastics surrounding it.
After replacement of the fuse box, ensure the terminals are securely tightened and does not heat up when engine is running.
