Here's how I requeen a hot hive.
Get a bottom board and lid for every box in the hive. If you don't have enough the bottom can be just a board and the top can be just a board propped up to make an entrance. Get one more top, lid and box. Move every box to it's own bottom and put the lid off and put the empty box on the old location. Walk away and let them all clam down. (of course use smoke generously, but not excessively during this). When you come back in a while, the feild bees will have gone back to the old box (which we know does not have a queen in it) and each box will be much less defensive. Start with the box with the most bees in it and look for the queen. If they are STILL too hot, then put half the frames in another box and wait for them to calm down again.
If you REALLY can't find her, buy a queen for each box and put a queen cage in each box. the one with the queen will kill the queen in the cage, the others will accept her. Now you know which one has a queen. Of course four days after doing this kind of split you can also figure out which box she's in by the one that has eggs in it.
One box of bees is MUCH less defensive than five boxes of bees. One box of bees MINUS the field workers is much less defensive than one box of bees including the field workers.
