Two things come to mind. First it could be not getting enough fuel when hot due to carb adjustment being too lean. That could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or the low speed jet is set too lean. When cold the choke circuit in the carb supplies the extra fuel required.
Second in some enjines that have low compression they start cold but when hot the compression drops below 60 psi and makes starting very difficult until engine cools down.
I suspect a fuel problem.

That is a Briggs & Stratton engine and given its age, I would say it is time to overhaul or replace the carburetor. Over time the float needle and seat become worn and inoperable which is why you are getting fuel in your crankcase. If you are not familiar or comfortable with working on these things, this is a job better left to a professional. There are too many things that can (AND WILL) go wrong in trying to do it yourself. Just scan through some of the questions on here and see how many others have taken theirs apart and can't remember how to put it back correctly!

There is a possibility that the head gasket is blown.
Until you are certain the issue of fuel being in the oil is resolved, internal engine damage could be happening. Inlet needle/seat leakage must be check with a leak detector or pressure guauge.

WHAT U NEED TO DO IS GET A CAN OF SPRAY STARTING FLUID (ANY AUTO PARTS STORE, VERY CHEAP) AND SPRAY IT INTO THE AIR INTAKE OF THE ENGINE, CHANGING THE SPARK PLUG ISN'T GOING TO HELP HERE, SPRAY THE STARTING FLUID AND ONCE IT IS RUNNING THE PROBLEM WILL CLEAR UP MOST LIKELY.
