The thermostat is located behind the alternator. Atleast on the 1.8t it is. I had the same problem and same symptoms. I hate to tell you this but its probably not the thermostat. Its the water pump. They have plastic impellers on them that that deteriorate after a while. Make sure if you get your water pump replaced you get one that has a metal impeller on it. You should get a new timing belt well they are in there as well. They have a pretty good deal on kits at ecstunning.com

NO the temp sensor is located on the head near the heater hoses close to the 4th cylinder if i am not wrong it is color coded and green

The thermostat will show what the guage shows. the seal on the coolent bottle can be checked for tightness. so it could be a faulty sensor?

heater lamp- set the fan sped knob to #2 position, and pull the knob off. It might fight ya and you might have to use both hands... no joke. Once the knob is off you'll see the bulb in there. maybe it just fell out of the socket?? If you have it around, use a piece of vaccuum line, 1/4" I think to extract the little bugger
