Camshaft position sensor a bank 1 ckt range/performance 1996 vw jetta 2.0l what does that meen ?

It basicall means you got that camshaft a little bit out of sync.If it a twin cam or a singke overhead cam what it relates to is the position in relation to the crank both have sensors the crank moves the pistons up and down and the cam opens and closes the valves and in that car drives the distrubitor . So the spark along with the opening and closing of the valves is to early or to late. I know you dont eant to but remove the timing belt covers and turn the crank to TDC ( top dead center) look at your cam timing marks ill bet they aren't exactly where they should be. Line those up and erase those trouble codes and reset the check engine light youll be good to go

  2. Engine runs rough.
  3. Vehicle sets P0340 (camshaft sensor code).
  4. Camshaft sensor has been checked with a known, properly operating camshaft sensor.

The diagram in the manuals should show the timing marks on both cam gears to be on the blue timing chain links.

NO, the engine is an overhead camshaft the rocker arms ride directly on the camshaft so their is no need for a lifter, by the way the valve lash should be .003-.005 of an inch.

Timing belt stipped

About the easiest way, is to put all belts back on properly, and turn engine over before complete re-assembly and check for compression.
I'm not able at this time to confirm that the 1.8L is, or isn't an interference engine, but regardless, you need to do this to see if any damage occurred anyway. Double check your oil pump sprocket & silent shaft timing. It can be 180 degrees out & still run, but engine may have a vibration when running.
