Not sure about the fans, but if it got really hot could have done a number on one or more of the plugs, maybe the cops too

A stock replacement fan would be fine, as far as the misfire it could be a number of things, time to start troubleshooting !

The stock gauge is not very accurate, it could have been much hotter, might not have been...

If it overheated and now is missing then its not a coincidence that the overheat caused it. Hopefully its just a sensor and not something fried in the engine. Time to start pulling codes and a stock replacement fan will be fine.

No CEL does not mean no codes. Hook up an OBDII code scanner and see if it spits out anything.

Yup, with misfires I believe it has to measure a certain amount in a given time to throw a cel. So if it's only missing intermittently a code might not be thrown.

I bought a Bluetooth OBD2 scanner and the Torque app for my phone, best $30 I've spent in a while, now I can track almost everything that is going on with my car, check and clear codes, etc. I diagnosed a lazy o2 sensor with it.

I bought the obd scanner from Amazon, Torque app is available for free or purchase (more features with paid version) in the android market. I think there was a like app for iPhone, but don't believe it's supported anymore.

I'll post a link in a few.

Here you go
