My whole family are hot tempered people. Can such trait be passed down from one generation to the next? if i do process such a character trait, are there any medications i can take to be more calm, and complacent? I seem to get paranoia and **** at every god damn thing.

Anger is as often a symptom of something else like depression or anxiety that a standalone problem. In many cases, cognitive behavior therapy is helpful, and perhaps one of the SSRI medications might also be beneficial.

Definitely, especially if one is more likely to blame others for one's distress. There's also the famous Yoda quote:

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
