White smoke from the exhaust is typically oil burning, caused by, worn valve seal(s) - worn or broken piston ring(s) or a broken head gasket, thus allowing excessive oil in to the combustion chamber, but then most auto shops already know this and would require major engine dis-assembly to truly diagnose this issue.
Hard starting could be oil fouled spark plugs, a result of the same issue.
As a side note: I would take a friend who is somewhat mechanically inclined with you to "your workshop" to engage the person(s) to get an in-depth explanation as to how they checked your piston.
Do not purchase a fuel pump or that repair on an assumption, be sure
One of the tell tale signs of a fuel related issue is black smoke...

When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.
The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.
Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.
From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).
You might get lucky with a small service :)
