Pay someone. This is a difficult job that should take a trained technician in a well equipped shop 5-6 hours to complete. That does not include having the flywheel resurfaced. Unless you are very organized, have adequate tools, torque specs, knowledge of what parts to replace and inspect while in there, and what not to destroy when removing the transmission and what to replace when putting it back together, you might get in over your head rather quickly. I am not out to doubt anyone's ability but this is not a as simple as an oil change or a brake job that even a novice can perform in a driveway unless you are 100% positive you are up to the task of removing the transmission, properly replacing the clutch and reinstalling the transmission I advise you not to open that can of worms until you are better trained. There are a ton of snags that you can and will run into during this job and you will need to know what to do. You can't get everything from a manual or how-to book.
Good luck.

1998 toyota corolla transmission heats up and quits

From my experience with transmissions your clutches are going out. If i am correct it run fine and even shifts good until it get hot correct? Check your trans strainer and inspect for dirty sludge in strainer if so that is residue from your clutches if not change fluid and strainer and see what happens.

Engine revs but power not transfered to car

If you notice you are needing to add oil occasionally then most likely your rear main oil seal is leaking into your transmission and oil is getting onto your clutch causing slippage.
Get this fixed and it should stop.
