Call up vet offices, traning barns, etc.
Call Sid at Erickson Veterinary he does all the vet/chiro work on our horses out here and we love him. He can point you in the right direction.
Talk to the farrier. Ask him how long he has been working, what he specializes in, what the most difficult corrective shoeing he has done. Ask for references. I shamelessly called vets and training barns when I first moved here to find mine.
Oh, and hot shoeing is when they use a forge. It's when you see the farrier put the shoe on and theres tons of steam and whatnot. Cold shoeing doesn't involve that. I'm sure theres more technical stuff going on, but I'm not a shoer.
