warm down hot up

I have a steam boiler system with radiators in a almost 100 year old house. The first floor temp will stay close to the temp on the thermostat but the second floor will get blazing hot. I saw a show where thermostats were installed on individual radiators to "zone" the heat, but this was done on a circulating hot water system. Can I do this on a steam system? Will it solve my problem? If so, where can I find them?
I also have a radiator that half gets hot but the other half stays cold...any ideas.
Just wanted to mention that I have had two of the reputable heating companies in my area to my house. Neither had any solutions other than we are going to just have to live with this.
