1, What's your budget?
2, Not for the unskilled, And, no, a fan will not improve performance.
3, Depends on what outputs your laptop has and what inputs the TV has.
4. Budget?

1. Neither, because a desktop is impractical for what you want to do.
Get a good laptop. Customize it to your liking, and then search the internet for "HP laptop coupon" (or something like that).
You're sure to find a good discount code; HP runs specials constantly.
Now that we're talking laptops, I suggest the intel i5 or i7 in one of those.

2. No

3. No, just use the HDMI interface and get a cheap HDMI cable from the internet.

4. Any TV with HDMI
