Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W500GN1 PC Desktop
My Sony was doing the same thing. I took it apart and found the cooling fan wasn't turning. I cleaned out all the dust and added some WD40 to the fan and it worked!

I do not believe that your problem is in the motherboard.
I do believe that these so called all in one systems are inferior in design as compared to a more advanced unit the archatecture for these all in one are not much different than a standard unit
However since the unit does freeze up and has periods of overheating I do believe that the power supply could very well be the culprit.
Motherboards are quite expensive and may not solve your problem
Power supplys are much cheaper and to me makes more sense.
Please let me know how things go.

The pros told you what you should do ... You can fiddle with it if you like ... spend more money and time and still have a computer the pros told you is not worth fixing.
It will probably not be reliable if you do get it running and you will probably lose all you important files, including your Last Will and Testament and your 600 page novel as well as your family tree and history that dates back to the Revolution.
You can put another case fan to help the cooling problem. I believe the tech is telling you your components are at least partly cooked and are on their death bed.
For just a little more than the cost of your motherboard, you can get an entire new computer that is NOT cooked.
This is free advise, take it for what it is worth.
