There are only a couple things you can check. First, I would make sure the gauge is reading properly by checking the fluid temperature manually. Newer model cars have temperature sensors that can malfunction but they will usually set your check engine light off it that is the case. Check your radiator fluid. While the engine is cold!! See if it looks dirty. Rub it between your fingers and see how viscous it feels. Make sure the radiator is full. You may just need to get your radiator flushed. A lack of flow will cause an overheating condition. When your back in motion the engine has more pressure to circulate the fluid. When the car is moving there is airflow that also aids in the cooling process as well. Other than that you have a thermostat which could be sticking and causing it to overheat. Or the water pump is bad. A flush and fill and replacing the thermostat are fairly cheap and usually a lot easier to do than replacing the water pump. Especially on a Honda. Usually you will hear a squealing noise if your water pump is going out and there is, I think it is called a weep hole on the pump itself that will start to leak when the pump is going bad.

If you have never changed a cambelt (timing belt) then it is not recommended that you attempt it. It is a job for a mechanic, as getting the cam timing wrong on reassembly is easy to do and can have disastrous consequences. It is easy enough once you know how, and if you are reasonably mechanically able, I'd suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle that has a step by step procedure for timing belt replacement. Companies like Haynes produce very good repair manuals.
