I am going to guess that you are talking about a ceiling paddle fan with remote control (the remote being either hand-held or in the wall box) The click sound you are hearing is likely the click of the relay in the electronic control module inside the ceiling fan. This module contains the actual power relay that turns the power on and off. There is one relay for the fan and another for the light. When you press the on-off buttons on the remote, it sends a radio signal to the control module and activates the relay. You can't hear the radio signal but you hear the relay click.

What kind of LED bulb - with a decent amount of light - produces the least heat?

The amount of light produced is measured in lumens, while the electric power used is measured in watts. An old-type 100 watt incandescent bulb produces about 1200 lumens. The same amount of light can be produced by a 70-watt halogen bulb, a 20 watt CFL bulb or a 15 watt LED. The power that is not turned into light is turned into heat instead.
