In the 'good old days' you would use the choke to adjust for cold starting but now they're automatic you have no such control!

sounds like a fuel issue, so may be pump or if you have one the carb. when hot the little fuel in the pipe may be vapourized so starving the engine till it cools

it really is a case of being hands on with the motor to be able to diagnose properly
