Are you the original owner of the laptop? Sounds like the battery is worn out. Also sounds like your ventilation is plugged up with dirt/ dust/ animal hair/ etc.

Try the link below for many threads on how to clean out your laptop. If you don't feel confident in trying that, you could try using canned compressed air on it. The fan is either bound up, or burned out. Laptop fans are not meant to run all the time. That said, if yours used to run sometimes and now doesn't, that would indicate there is a problem with the fan.

Google for replacement batteries.
