I have a 2005 Cadillac deville and the trans hot idle engine has been coming on. I then discovered that the high pressure hose to the transmission is leaking badly. The car will not shift past first gear....

Check transmission fluid level first. How long since it's been changed? Make sure to use owners manual to check correctly. Usually hot, idle, run through gears first. If low, could cause all those conditions.

When the car says transmission is hot idle engine what does that mean

just what you said. The temp sensor in the trans is telling the computer the trans fluid is hot and to stop driving.
If the fluid is not hot the sensor could be faulty.

1996 Cadillac Sedan Deville that overheats only when idling

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line(small hose).The purge line is designed to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank (not the cap) ,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.
If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.
The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side close to the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.
