Door locked, from inside and out

sounds as if the door latch may be too far in causing this to UN open if you can understand that try pushing against the door and allowing someone else to work the door handle just trying to relieve the pressure a if you manage to open the door , readjust the door striker bolt as well as lubricate the lock ,otherwise remove the window completely so you wont break it while working on the door latch from inside the vehicle are all the linkages still connected ? try lubricating the lock latch as well it can be a pain but if you are patient enough you can get the door to release if and when you do remove the screws and linkages to the lock and remove and either replace or clean the latch itself and oil it good work it by hand a dozen times to ensure the working lock itself then when your confident it is working replace it and reverse method to reinstall

1999 Volkswagen Passat inside inner door panel

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
