First off your battery should not be getting "hot", you have an electrical issue. It could be the battery or your alternator. You don't want to be letting your battery to continue doing this as it could explode damaging your car or even you. Please take it to a local autozone or local mechanic to run a test on your car before you get hurt. Second, how is your coolant? Is that getting hot too? For your trans, I would check your fluid first, it almost sounds as if your trans fluid is low and or overheating.
