A car can overheat for a lot of reasons.First make sure this is the problem by checking the radiator hose or water level. Open the radiator cap when the car is cold, crank it, and then watch the water level. If it drops when the car warms up this is not the problem.
The tools you will need will depend on what you have to take off to get to it. If you can access the thermostat you should only need a ratchet or wrench to remove it and something to scrape off old gasket with.
Location:The thermostat should be inside the thermostat housing on the motor. Follow your top radiator hose to the place where it goes into the motor. There should be a sort of dome shaped housing there with probably a bolt on either side of it.The thermostat is inside that.
This is a reasonably easy job, but shouldn't be done carelessly. It's also kind of messy.
When the car is cold remove the bolts from the housing with a ratchet. Lots of coolant and water will drain out. But the thermostat will be visible.Pay attention to which side of the thermostat is up.It should just lift up. Remove all the old gasket from around the area and clean it up well. Replace the thermostat and gasket then the bolts. Be very careful not to over tighten the bolts or the housing will be ruined.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

The head gasket has gone so pressure builds up in the cooling system and forces water out of the overflow
You need someone to take the head off , skim it and fit a new gasket
