I think you are onto something. The thermostat in my opinion is too low causing the radiator to not cool enough before it is sent back into the motor. The block and the pistons are heating up causing it to run poorly. When was the last time you had your radiator flushed? ( I would have said that the headers are heating up the starter and this is causing the drain on the battery but you stated that once you get the car started it runs rough so i would have to rule the starter out.)

Did you run the engine with rad cap off & heater (not defrost) on while topping up the coolant. If not, do it & let it run that way until your rad fan comes on & off about 3 times, then top rad up to a inch or 2 from top, and put cap back on, & check level in return bottle.

overheating can be caused by defective radiator, core plugged or fins have come seperated from the fluid tubes or one of the radiator hoses have collapsed esp the bottom one when the water pump is sucking hard, normally has a spring inside to prevent this.. also caused by a rotted out head gasket and coolant is not circulating fully to the rear cylinder so is only cooling front cylinders.. can also be a defective water pump or thermostat itself. The air conditioner load may be excessive if you're using that... defective radiator pressure cap, should be 14 lbs or so... pressure too low or none?
