Adding to the above, what troubleshooting have you done?
Did you take the device as is and just start using it? Could be there is an app running all the time, and the heat is coming from the processor, and hence the battery drain.
If you didn't, it would be a good idea to do a security wipe and start from scratch. With each app you run, check the options and make sure the app is not set to run in the background when closed unless you need it to do so. Also, exit apps when you are done. Don't leave anything running unless you need to.
The phone is already wiped out, and there are no running apps, and the heating starts from the sides of the phone thors the battery and it gets so hot that it could burn your hands, not that ugly but it heats a lot! Not normal!

The real truth about overheating and battery drainage is the fact that there is limited 3G network in your area. Put the phone on 2G network only. You can still do most things with the 2G network
pls let me know how it is after putting it on 2G network for 10 minutes

9900 is really different, for better performance you have to use your region/ carrier approved OS.
i tried lot of new and fancy OS with this and that..
but nothing beats to Vodafone .324 version and that's what i am using...

This OS runs several degrees cooler than any other produced to date.
If the phone still runs hot on this OS then I think that it is a hardware issue.Bold 9900 on Vodafone UK running BL Ultimate Hybrid RC15 on Do Co Mo .923 Base and .sfi
