1: No, you cannot transfer a Cfw to another Ps3.

2: The original Nand based (Phat) PS3 consoles are prone to overheating, this is a Sony fault due to cheap solder used on the mainboard, similar to the RROD with Xbox 360 consoles, the Nor based Phat consoles are just as reliable as the slim consoles, the 80gb CECHL or the 40gb CECHJ are outstanding machines, personal preference, these 2 models will out last majority of the slim consoles.

Replacing the thermal compound will not fix overheating issues,maybe temporarily in some cases, it is recommended to apply new thermal compound before overheating starts to occur, majority of the time when Ps3/Xbox 360 consoles overheat they require a reball, which is replacing the solder, same as the hair dryer solution that people tend to use, these are NOT permanent fixes.
