You could install a standard GFCI in line at each component ( heater, pump & timer) or you could install AFCI breakers similar to what are required in many residential codes (provide the same protection at the panel not at the location... http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PUBS/afcifac8.PDF
The AFCI breakers will need to match your panel type (siemens, GE or Square-D) and the amperage/configuration.
I would install them at the lowest level (closest to the components) in the system to reduce possibility of fire in the wiring between the components and the afci breaker.

You need to check the amp draw on the breaker that is warm. The smell you notice is not normal. Use a temp gun to test the breakers for higher that normal reading. High temp is caused by high current or loose connection.

You can Google the catalog number for that breaker. You can also try to call local electrical contractors as one can usually find at least one contractor who has saved every old part that they have removed over the years. Also try ebay.
Unfortunately, even if you do find the correct breaker it will probably be very expensive :-(

You could use 6/3 with ground. You must take an equipment ground conductor along with your current carrying conductors. Still drive a ground rod at the building, and add a seperate ground bar in the sub panel. Connect your equipment grounding conductor from main building along with the equipment grouding conductor to the ground rod. Do not bond the neutral in the sub panel to ground. Be aware you will still have some voltage drop, so a 220V air conditioner might be better.
