Gears arent going and no acceleration and burning smell

You need to have a look at your clutch. The burning smell is the clutch slipping.

Burning smell whenever i pull off, go up steep hills or simply reverse up my drive

1) Check the brake pads all round. If a caliper is sticking (not retracting fully) then the pad will remain in contact with the disc rotor and gets very hot giving off burning smells. 2) If you have a manual transmission it could also be that your clutch is at the point of failing. A slipping clutch is indicated in gear the engine races irrespective of the the car accelerating along with a smell of burning.

Not properly accelerating

If you had somebody do it, I would take it back and tell them what it's doing. I'm not sure about vw's, but if that is equipped with a hydraulic clutch, it could be low on fluid, or something wrong with the slave valve.
