I bought a clematis. And I need to buy a trellis. I feel a metal trellis may get hot and damage the plant? Or does it not matter?

Welcome! My clematis is on a metal trellis. Seems to do just fine.

Emily,
I really do not think that it matters to the Clematis. It may matter to you so you should use what looks the best for you.

Thank you for your responses. I'm looking for a long horizontal trellis to serve as a backdrop to my long rectangular raised bed. I think I'll have more luck finding a wire trellis with that in mind.
