Too hot overall, and quite high summer dewpoints. C (-).

This is one of the hottest places there is, and still has the world record for consecutive number of days in a row above 90F (333).
No winter, only a tolerable dry season is liveable.

E. Horrible climate. Only the winters are tolerable (and then only marginally), which saves it from an 'F'.

Too hot for me so a D. Hate to think how the original settlers fared without the benefit of air conditioning!

B.

Not much cold in winter and it's probably just the nights.
Humidity and overnight lows are lower than Darwin, suggesting lower dewpoints.
Extended spells of heat and extreme dry season would make gardening challenging.
Record high for Wyndham is only 46 C, comparable with a lot of inland Australia.
There is probably more heat-stress on plants than if they were in Darwin, making plants thirstier.

At the moment, I have no opinion on how hot their climate is, for my personal comfort.

E, the perpetual heat and humidity and lack of wind in summer would kill me. Despite being much hotter in summer, I gave Phoenix a C but I think Phoenix's summers would be more tolerable than Wyndham's plus Phoenix is much cooler in winter.
