SMCFanControl will not help that, unfortunately. It will not make your fans run slower than it is needed to, to prevent you burning out your CPU etc.
I use it to manually set fan speeds *higher* than the system thinks it should set the fans, so that CPU/etc. temperatures are lower than what the system thinks is acceptable. I get a little more fan noise but under 4000 rpm it is not noticeable and I run with lower temps.
For Flash apps, all you can do is download the latest version of Flash (and try out the latest Beta versions). If any Flash app is causing 100% CPU unfortunately that will also make your fans spin more or less at maximum speed which is when you get loud noise, when the fans hit 5000rpm-6000rpm on the MacBook/MBP13".
