The Jetta vr6 has a timing chain. These don't have to be replaced unless the gear is worn. When worn they will jump timing by a tooth or two. This will cause the engine to run rough.

You may want to check some things out before actually replacing the starter.
Check the fuse in the fuse box and the relay.
There are two parts to the starter. One is the actual starter motor and the other in the starter solenoid. The solenoid moves the starter motor into place and engages it into the engine.
When you turn the key you should hear the solenoid click as it moves the starter. If you hear the click and the sound of the stater motor spinning it is just the solenoid. It can be replaced without replacing the starter motor.
If you hear the click and no sound of the starter motor trying to turn. It is the starter motor.
It check for power at the motor. Use a test light or voltage meter to see it is getting power when the key is turned.
If you are getting power you have a problem with the starter motor as you suspect already. The above may save you money.
To change the motor it is fairly simple to do. You remove the four bolts holding the motor in place, remove the electrical connections. Slide the motor out. Installation is the reverse of removal.
I am assuming you know where the starter is. On a diesel it is on the back of the engine. On a gas engine it is on the front side.
If you really want to get into it you can replace the brushes on the starter motor. Once out you open the starter and install new brushes it they appear warn and are not making contact.
If you need details I would go to the library and ask for the Bentley service manual. They will have one or can get one from another branch.

On my 2000 jetta glx, I had to replace both the shift knob and boot as one. It is built as one unit. You have to pull the boot up over the shift knob, break/bend a clip to "unlock" the shift knob then pull up. I hope the new knob you got has the boot built in and comes with a new clip.
You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.
I had the same problem on my 95 jetta, I had to take the door panel off and replace the lock that the wiring harness goes to. got the part from a wrecking yard, replaced it, works fine now. hope this helps.
