There were two manor conflicts in East Asia which were part of the Cold War, those being the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Korea remains divided into North and South Korea to this day, but Vietnam became a unified communist nation (and remains one of the last communist nations on Earth). Other than that, various Cold War alliances affected all the politics of the region.

What lengthy American war in southeast Asia is a time when the cold war became hot?

The cold war didn't go hot; if it did, it would've been called World War III. Therefore, there were two hot "battles" of the cold war; Korea and Vietnam. But Korea is not located in SEA (South East Asia); Korea is up the coast bordering Russia/China. Some people sometimes call them "hot wars" of the cold war. Korea & Vietnam were the "shooting portions" of the cold war.
