The fuel pump takes a couple seconds to get up enough pressure. If it takes longer than that, maybe your filter is clogged. They get full of rust. Sometimes the car stumbles on heavy load, or won't even run above idle, but yours could be a mild case. Pulling the pump out can be a big job, so try the filter first.

Could be sepentine or timing belt.
More than likely a tensioner for serp belt or timing belt. It could also be the pulley for the alternator - a pretty common problem for VW's.
