The motor heating up is caused by the motor pulling too much current. The ESC has nothing to do with how much current the motor pulls. So changing the ESC will accomplish nothing. The motor's current pull is caused by the load on the motor, which is the propeller. The way you decrease that load, which decreases the current and thus the heat, is to either use a smaller propeller or spin the propeller slower by lowering the motor's applied voltage, i.e., lose a battery cell.
