2005 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi running hot. Will a bad manifold gasket cause this problem

A manifold gasket has very little to do with engine cooling so, No!
Firstly check your fluid levels are correct. Don't worry, I've made that mistake!
The next cause of overheating could be the thermostat. A cheap and fairly easy fix to do yourself.
Check you coolant to see if there is oil mixed in it. This will suggest a faulty head gasket.
Run the engine at idle speed with the hood open, until it gets to working temperature. As it does CAREFULLY touch the top radiator hose feeling for it heating up. Also listen and watch for the radiator fan switching on. If the pipe stays cool it is probably the thermostat stuck shut.
If the heat starts getting too high and the fan doesn't 'kick' in, it could be the fan switch.
If the vehicle gets TOO hot turn it OFF and let it cool down.

Overheating when I sit idle.

Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Motor engine cooling fan only runs as engine temperature requires additional cooling.

My car is getting hot in idle, what is wrong?

Check first your coolant level. Start engine and turn on ac open hood see if cooling fans are running, if fans are running and coolant level is ok temperature should stay normal. If temperature rises squeeze coolant hose, it should be firm like you could feel pressure on the hose a sign that the water pump is good. Thermostat opens only when coolant reach normal operating temperature.

Air conditioner works fine while driving. When stopped for a light, temperature gage goes up and fan blows hot air.

Hello: Check the radiator cooling fan. With engine running and A/C on open hood look down on the back-side of the grill, that's where the cooling fan is. It should be running, if not check the fuses, cooling fan relays/module if they are ok then you may have a cooling fan motor failure. You can use jumper cables to hot wire the fan motor to see if it runs.

Heats up when stopped and cools down when running

Almost certainly a problem with the radiator cooling fan. When the car is stationary only the fan forces air through the radiator to cool the coolant. When on the move the car pushes air through the radiator. Next time is gets warm put the interior heating on to full blast. It will be uncomfortably hot but it will help take heat from the coolant. Check out that fan operation

Engine and hood extremly hot new thermostat installed and temp gauge working properly why so hot?

Make sure you're using proper amount of coolant in the water. You could have dirty fins or something blocking the front of the rad preventing it from cooling enough or might be rad clogging up. If gauge goes over half way then I'd worry. I'd remove rad and use rad cleaner or get it cleaned professionally.

Engine temperture runs hot after idling or waiting in traffic for an extended period of time perhaps 10 minutes

Sounds like your cooling fan may not be kicking on. Start the car in the driveway and just let it run with the hood open. When the engine starts to heat too much, the cooling fan should kick on. If it doesn't, it could be a fuse, a relay, a temperature switch, or the fan clutch itself.
