if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.

low oil pressure, you might have an oil sending unit going bad, but it might also be the oil pressure sensor. i would replace the sensor first. its cheaper and way easier, if the problem still happens then its the sending unit (aka oil pump) and that is located in the oil pan

There is no automatic transmission dip stick on your car. There is a long procedure to check and fill and you will need special fluid from VW. Better left to the dealer. If you want the procedure let me know.

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Sounds like an isolated problem. While it's true that VW Beetles use a lot of oil, it sounds like you are loosing an abnormally high amount if your having to add oil every month. If it's not leaking out it has to be burning out through the engine. A good indicator of loosing too much oil through the engine is a white smoke coming from your exhaust.
Also, be certain your using the SAE 5W-30 oil that's recommended by VW.
