for some reason.. i want to put a pump outside the cannister in my attempt at DIYing a cannister filter. I know its designed to be submerged in water... but will it overheat if it is not. :) there will still be water constantly running through the pump. :)

There are water pumps made that are not meant to be submerged. You could look into those instead...

I think the proper term is "external in-line pumps", look for "dry application"

Magdrive, QuietOne, and Eheim are a few brands off the top of my head that can be used both submersed and emersed.
