Re: overheating issue
Yes. Thermostat is easy to change. Order a new gasket too and any clips you'll need. Keep the old 'stat in case the new one doesn't make any difference.
I don't know how to test the water pump. What happens sometimes is that the blade part slips on the stub so it doesn't rotate, even though the stub is going round. Unless someone knows different, I think the only test is a visual inspection.
Trouble is, the beast lives with the cam-belt tensioner, so if it has to come apart, I'd consider fitting new belts/tensioner at the same time.
