This sounds like your clutch fan is not engaged, so therefore not operating as designed.......a test: Have someone start your car up first thing in the morning & cold, you will have the hood up, watch & listen to the fan upon starting it will look like its not turning as fast as the the belts & pulleys, once the fan clutch engages, it will turn as fast as the belts & pulleys, also you will hear a change in sound.......if not, the clutch is bad.......

Also................................. the condition you explained, you overheat when you are stopped, this is when the movement of air from the fan should cool the engine, so if the fan is not working you will get this condition. When you are moving forced air cools the engine.
