Have a Cooling System pressure test done. Any good shop can do it for you. It can be alot of things and instead of throwing parts at it, have the system pressure tested. That will identify your problem.

The only thing you need to change for the heating issue is the radiator. The engine shaking sounds well isf I were you I would get a diagnostic check. they can plug it to a machine and it will give off some errors that might point to whats wrong..

OVERHEATING


There are a number of checks that need to be done to assess the problem first be sure that the thermostat is changed out then fill the radiator with a 50% water and 50% coolant mixture, be sure the overflow resevoir is also topped off as well. Run the engine for about 10 minutes and look for any leak if the leak is seen replace the broken hose, radiator or gasket that is leaking this should solve the problem if not it may be a blown head gasket this is usually indicated when white smoke is seen coming out the exhaust or white gummy substance is seen on the dip stick.

Over heating when driving. changed thermostat, changed head gasket, still over heating and now it is hard to start


It is hard to start because the recent overheat causing a gap between the head gasket reducing the compression ratio in each cylinder hence it is difficult for a combustion.
The most culprit of the car overheating is the poor circulation of coolant due to bad pump or/ and clog up radiator. The 2 important things that have not been mentioned are needed to take care of now.

Vw golf 2.0 gti, overheating, boiling water, no power loss


Sounds like you may need a new Thermostat.

Get a Haynes or Chilterns manual and a new Thermostat for the carfrom a car parts place like Autozone. Its normally a simple opperation to change it.
