SOURCE: cleaning drainage holes
i think the drainage holes you are reffering to are the ones in the front cowel. You have to remove the wiper arms and the unscrew the cowel to get at the drains.

drain tubes are generally on firewall level with bottom of heater box (but on engine side) usually in dumb places that are a pain to get to. They look like a small rubber hose elbow sticking out. Once found, usually you can clear them by just sticking your finger into the end (no screwdrivers or hard objects...you can damage stuff inside there)

Yes, the plastic caps at the bottom of the footwell, are for drainage. (Don't forget to replace them. You may not be pleased with yourself, if you don't, on a real rainy day!)
Does the water have a real nasty smell, and the inner windshield has a film on the inside? If so, then you have a heater core leak, and it's antifreeze.
If not, your air conditioning drain duct is plugged, and needs to be cleaned out. I also suggest a real weak solution of bleach and water, to be applied in this area, to kill any mildew that might form. (Unless you are allergic to bleach. If so, you may want to try an alternative. Mildew is bad for your respiratory system)

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

What engine is in this passat? Radiator is simple enough, on the left hand of the radiator on the very bottom of it there will be a ridged tapered nipple sort of thing, about a half inch long. Just unscrew that and open the header tank. Generally the thermostats arent too hard to find. Forward facing normally under three bolts.
