Not sure if its fully charged or not. Or the summer heat could be raising the heat making it feel warmer

I have a tester but it wont fit on the metal male part with the hole in it.

Take it to a shop have them test it.

You need a gauge set to check the pressure on the low and high side of the system. What kind of tester do you have? Sounds like you have a low pressure side gauge but are trying to put it on the high pressure side which is a different port size.
