Could be shifter linkage adjustment otherwise transmission likely needs to come apart and be inspected.

If your Sportster has a four speed transmission, it's is an older Ironhead Sportster. If it's an 883cc (900), it was built prior to 1971. I suspect that this is not what you have.
All Evolution powered Sportsters had five speed transmissions. I would suspect that your shifting problem is a broken shifter pawl in the primary. The pawl is just behind the clutch assembly. They are not difficult to replace. You may can do it without pulling the clutch assembly but I've always pulled the assembly.
As for the tranny running hot, you should be running about a quart of H-D semi synthetic primary lube for Sportsters in the primary. They will get hot since the engine and tranny are unitized and heat will be conducted throughout the engine case.
