After your exhaustive tasks I feel one of two things are left to rule out.
First, have you an air lock? did you bleed the cooling system after installation of parts? if not try parking on level ground, with engine cold not running remove coolant filler cap and top up if required to correct level.
Start the vehicle and leave to idle with cap off, have plenty of hot water available, when at operating temperature you may here gurgling and see bubbles in the cooling system Beware not to get too close as it will hopefully boil over, after it does top up with warm water and wait, keep blower on full and heat to max inside vehicle.
It may boil/bubble over a few times before settling if so top up and replace cap once settled.
Finally if an abundant amount of air bubbles are continually visible and regular bubbling over then unfortunately the cylinder head or gasket could be at fault.
I hope this points you in the correct area.
Please remember to politely rate this possible remedy!

After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.
To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.
Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.
Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.
If you have any questions, let me know.

Drive safe and be warm.

Water pump is locate on the front center of the engine.
I will rate water pump change as a 7/10 in difficulty scale.
You should check for special tool(s) requirement from the library before you start.
It's a good time to change the drive belt at the same time.
50/50 coolant mix is fine.
If you haul heavy load or in cold climate then bump it up to 60/40 mix
DO NOT FORGET to find or draw the belt routing diagram before you undo the tension.
A 30 second sketch will save you a lot of time.
