You might have multiple things going on. You might be overfilling the trans. But why it won't start after 10mins has got me stumped. So the coolant line going to the radiator was leaking? You replaced that? Are you checking the level correctly? To do so, the engine must be warm, in park with engine running. Maybe there is some residual trans fluid and coolant on your exhaust pipes and that is smoking once the warm up.

A bad modulator will draw out the fluid into it's vacuum line. It will cause white smoke from the exhaust. Possibly a reluctance to shift. Find the vacuum line where it connects to the intake manifold, it's a small Approx. 1/4 inch steel tube. Remove it and see if it's dry or wet with ATF. Modulator valves are sometimes on the outside of the trans. and are not to hard or expensive to replace.
