Check the new thermostat by putting it in a pan of water and bringing it to a low boil. See that it opens. It is possible to get bad parts off the shelf.

Check the antifreeze for oil, pull your dipstick out, see if antifreeze is in oil or smells sweet or over full, sounds like you may of a bad head gasket. You can also check this by having a compression test done on the cylinders.

I'am sort of missing something here
Was the radiator blocked or replaced as a guess ?
The thermostat i understand
The heater core by pass i don't,what does that prove ?
The shop says - intake manifold hose.
A hose causing overheating,explain that one.
The finally question
What is your question? Did the repair shop
get lost and ask you for help?

Have it tested for combustion gases in the cooling system. You could have a blown head gasket from all the overheating.

Testimonial: "ok i will do that i also noticed that the lower radiator hose is not getting hot, could that be caused by the combustion gases?"
