There is a small bypass hose for the thermostat. Are you asking how to do a complete flush? If you want to make sure you get all the coolant out there is a 14mm drain plug on the left side of the engine block that will allow all the coolant to drain. It is tough to get to without the right tools. Make sure you remove the small bleeder screw on the thermostat housing when refilling so all the air is purged from the system.

92 nissan 300zx air bubbles in radiator

Bad news is the air bubbles are actually exhaust gases entering your coolant, you have a blown head gasket, and or bad head, which is also the overheating concern.

How do you change thermostat?

Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead to the thermostat housing, bolted to the engine with two screws. Remove the two screws, along with the section of metal pipe that the radiator hose is bolted to, remove old thermostat, replace with new thermostat and proper rubber gasket. Bolt housing and metal pipe back onto engine.

Engine overheating

If the water pump is pumping you should be able to see moving water/engine coolant in the radiator when the radiator cap is removed and the thermostat is open.
Have you checked to see if your electric cooling fan is operating properly?
