Motor out is not needed.
You need to disconnect the drive shafts, put a jack under the back of the motor, and put a trolley jack under the box before you undo it.
You do not say if it is auto or manual, removing the box is slightly different depending on which one you have.

Face the trolley jack so it can roll backwards easily, remove anything that may be stopping the box coming down and back. eg: exhausts, gear linkages/stick ( from in the cab if manual)
reverse and neutral light wires, oil cooler pipes.

You will need to lower the box with a couple of easily accessible bolts still in place at the bell housing. Do this slowly with someone watching the engine fan to radiator gap etc, and make sure you do not do more damage getting it out.
Now set both jacks to take equal weight, making sure the box is balanced and secured to the trolley jack before you undo the last bolts.
It is all about balance, alignment and going very slowly with the separation.
Do not rush it. Be very slow and calm. Sudden movements can bend the gearbox shaft, damage your torque converter, or worse, trap you.
When everything is right and secure, you will be able to shake the box by hand and pull it back.
You may have to adjust the height of either or both jacks to take it out cleanly, being very careful of how much you allow the back of the motor to drop and what it may contact or stretch and break as you do so.
Take care and work safe. :)

Yes, it can be completely normal, engine idling RPM's will have various factors that affect them such as temperature, altitude, oil level. In all cars the RPM's will change when the compressor for the AC is activated.

Lc prado overheat cause?

The turbo will not cause overheating.
Check the thermostat in the cooling system is working and then smell the coolant with the engine running. If you smell exhaust gases in the coolant it could be the head gasket.
