Rx8 blue smoke

Blue smoke is caused by burning oil, if it only puffs for a minute on initial start up I wouldn't worry. It is really common for newer fuel injected engines to blow a small amount off blue smoke on cold startup. Plus rx8 use oil while the engine is on, if you are new to rotary engines then a little bit of history on this engine is they do burn much more oil than a typical piston combustion engine, that is due to the lubrication system, it actually uses oil in the entire rotary housing so the rotors dont get too hot. you are supposed to check/add oil every 2 gas fill ups. you would think the would come up with a better system, but thats the downside to a rotary. they are mean engines though. they are a 1.3L but, your oil seals might be going or your ignition coils or spark plugs may be going bad.

My 2004 RX8 won't start when the engine is warm, when its cold it starts no problem. If I drive the car till it at operating temp and shut it down I have to wait an hour until start it again

if this car is on the cold start injector when it is defective. Injects additional fuel to the engine is still warm. Is it to feel warm by running more than normal gasoline smell?

2004 Mazda RX8 Heater problem

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.

Heat will not switch on

sound like a stuck blend door motor, not switching back and forth from hot to cold. the most likley cause is a bad heater control panel not commanding the motor to move as requested.
