Please don't take this personally, but you're way in over your head. That poor thing needs professional attention and you need someone to talk you through the entire (working) system.
Why do you think the oil level was low? Did it dip low or was it a warning lamp? Overheating: Was there raw cooling water flow? Was there sufficient coolant? Was there a coolant leak? The possibilities are legion and you risk wrecking the engine (if it isn't already). BTW, how do you know the engine was serviced? Did you see receipts?
