i hope your a nudist as its gonna be awful hot near a stove large enough to also heat your upstairs. Maybe you could wear shorts on the other side of the basement away from the stove. (sarcasm but kind of true)
a few well placed vents thru the floor will do as much or more good than a fan. If you do go thru with putting a stove down there, dont cut any holes in your floor until you draw a layout of your basement and house and post it here. These guys and gals can really help with hole placement for maximum heat movement, as much or more than the help you will get about a stove.
