I have seen circuit breakers trip at a lower amperage. It seems that they are weak. Generally circuit breakers run with 80% load with no problem, in your case 24 amps. I would replace the circuit breaker.

Does the panel have room for the breaker?
Federal Pacific is a brand name panel and you may be able to find breakers at Home Depot, Menards, or Lowes if those stores are in your area. Bring the panel number to the store with you.
Here's a link for additional info:
There have also been some recalls for these panel breakers. See:

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.

When Working with Household Electricity you want to always keep in mind that the BLACK wire ALWAYS carries DEATH. What I mean by this is that working with a Single Phase Circuit (one that uses 120VAC) the only wire that should be carrying a voltage is the BLACK one, the other 2 wires (typically the White Neutral and Green Ground) should both be electrically connected to Earth Ground (usually by being attached to your water pipe.)
It is also possible that your hot tub may use more than 20 Amps.
