wow... a glowing converter? I'll stay tuned on this thread to find out whats going on... I'd say it's safe to say it is plugged/damaged and all the back pressure is at the converter causing it to get that hot...

Which would certainly explain the rough running situation as well.
No check engine light indicated? Make sure it at least comes on before startup.
