Most likely just a dirty fuel filter.You may have got a load of contaminated fuel.Why not try that first as it won't cost much.
Keep a spare with you as you might require another until the bad fuel is used up.(if a new filter is the cure)

It seems to me you may have a very lean air/fuel mixture so when you open the throttle for more air there is no corresponding fuel coming to give you enough power.
My first port of call would be the fuel filter. It may be clogged as you rightly point out. If there is no engine check light on that will iliminate the sensors. I'm sure you would have noticed fuel leaks though what would seem like very high fuel consumption so what remain is the pump.

Some garages may have a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure but it's a lot cheaper just to replace the fuel pump. The old pump may sometimes have intermittent failure which a pressure gauge may not pick up.

The temp sensor is sending the wrong information to the engine control module. It could just be a loose connection where it plugs into the wire harness or it might be a faulty temp sensor.
