Hi,
Replacing a clutch is a major provedure, often involving moving the engine off it's mounts, or removing the subframe and steering assembly to remove the gearbox.

Sometimes after a clutch refit, there are related problems with hoses or as in your case electrical faults.

It is probably a sensor cable that has been damaged - and that information is not available to the ECU or control gear. Other times it is the vacuum hoses which allow air in when damaged.

I would take the car back to have a diagnostic check. If it is found to be a sensor not reading or damaged pipe - offer to go halves on the replacement costs - as they are more likely to do this than pay outright. If it is quick for them, they may not charge anything because you were reasonable in the first place.
Sometimes if a connection was weak anyway - it's not entirely their fault.

Check the tightness of the manifold bolts and look for evidence of a leaking gasket. If it is an injected petrol engine it could be leaking injector seals. Sounds like a vacuum problem. PS check all vacuum lines for cracks. Col

the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad

Probalby not, seeing that's what's telling your over heating. it wont be a bad idea to remove it (be carefull of hot fluid) and clean it off and put it back in. (wouldn't hurt anyways) but this problem is most likly a falty relay form the PCM to the fans. wireing might be corroed and need to be cleaned. check the fans for power and gorund with an omh meter.
