Nice that they told you that you need a new transmission, but did they also tell you why? Did they do tests to come to this conclusion?
The moment the overheating occured, where you driving or standing still?
Just as a quick check, is the transmission fluid at the proper level, light red in color and not with a burned smell?
What could have happened for example is that the transmission cooler in the radiator is leaking and that coolant went into the transmission. (i wonder though which pressure will be higher, from the cooling system or from the transmission) But not sure if the 2006 Cherokee has the transmission cooler in the radiator.
