I have a 92 Bronco and the plug on mine is on the passenger side lower corner. It faces the passenger seat & looks like a black wingnut.

The heater only blows HOT air when set on defrost or floor settings. If you have the lever set for vent, only cold air will come out. Check to make sure you set the controls to floor or defrost. This is standard for all Festiva's.

The radiator may be limed up - flushing won't fix that. If that is so, you would have to remove the end caps and rod out the core to break the lime loose and clear it (i. e., take it to a radiator shop). I assume the fins on the outside of the radiator are clean and not all smashed flat.
Do you have evidence of overheating other than what the temperature sensor is telling you? If you can get your hands on an infrared (remote - non-contact) thermometer, see how hot it is at the water pump and thermostat housing.

Probably blew the head gasket, warped the head or the timing belt is broken. Look inside the oil fill cap and watch to see if anything is moving inside, cam shaft or rockers, when you crank the engine over. If you can see them and they don't move, the belt is broken. Probably time to get rid of it and find something else to drive.
