Wow, lot of verbiage. let's see if I can follow it. The car does not over heat and the top hose gets hot. The water in the top of the radiator was not hot. If I have that all right then I think your thermostat is bad or the water pump. At least start with the thermostat and lets see what you have. Even a cheap top hose could suck in and not be bad.
