Ok, excellent that you have some power back
It does sound like you still have some loose connections that need to be addressed, since the outlet is getting warm and the light dims on its own.
That is a definite sign of a loose connection.
The only way to address this, is to actually remove the receptacle and redo where the wires connect.
It can be done yourself if you feel comfortable doing so, you must turn off the breakers in order to complete the task.
If you are not comfortable doing this, you might see if someone you know can assist or another family member.
If one outlet has a loose wire, it can affect some others also, so you have keep a watch in case the looseness gets worse than it is now and shuts off more of them later.
That is about the only way to address the problem, wish there was an easier way.
