The DPF and Exhaust Gas Warning Lamp are lit up on my VW T5. Do i just need to burn it off or is there something else wrong?

I had similar problems and had to have a manual regeneration of DPF (this should be done by professional).
This only fixed mine temporarily and the light was back on a few days later, mine turned out to be a faulty sensor which i replaced (about 60 pounds ) and has been fine ever since.

The engine exhaust warning lamp is staying on, when taken to repair they mentioned it could be problems with the turbocharger - nothing specific was given. Could it be the turbocharger, or is there another...

The turbo would be the my first thought for exhaust temp light. Turbos can be troublesome at times they carbon up, blades come out of balance, and oil accumulates in them (they're oil cooled) I'd have a good competent shop give you an estimate - labor & parts rates vary between shops and parts suppliers.

I have a 2001 hyundai sonata, I have a light that is coming on, in the manual it says gas, exhaust light, what is that?

emmission light.
there is a small vapour leak in the fuel sytem of your car.
this doesn`t mean your leaking liquid gas -only a small amount of fuel vapours.
the emmission system of today`s vehicle are very sensitive, and when the car`s computer monitors this, it will display this information thru your dash warning light.
yor car is still safe to drive, but eventually you will have to fix this problem in order to pass a drive -clean -emmission test. See your service repair shop for further diagnostics..
