The thermastat is not in at this moment and I understand
that it will have a hard time getting to the heater core '/yet
the car still overheats and does not put any heat in the car

without a thermostat, your car will take much longer to heat up. The reservoir overflowed maybe due to an low coolant level or air in the system. Since it was overheating before you replaced the radiator, maybe the head gaskets were compromised. You can perform a pressure test and or leak down test on the engine cylinders to verify.
