Taht should be your next step, first to see original concept. Test motor on 6V with 7806, watch how its running, measure current.

Then we go next.

If i use a transistor, then the max voltage i can get to the motor is 5.3v only. Is it that 6v minus transistor voltage drop?

The LM7806 is hot when the trimmer is turn to 0 ohm. That means it now drive direct from 6V.
I'm wondering why the LM7806 will become hot? Is it the current is too high?
