Yes, xylene is the way to go.
No, 37ºC will not hurt the sections no matter for how long they are at that temp.

If I want to remove a cover slip that is coversliped with permount.  Do
I need to use xylene to get rid of the semi hardened permount gunk?

Also,  If I am heating paraffin sectioned slides overnight at 37C to
adhere them what happens if I over cook them by leaving them at 37C for
more than one day?

Say 3-4 days at 37C  It probably wont hurt them as they haven't been
epitope retrieved yet.
