The PCV is a regular PCV valve. That is ok, it is all the plumbing that gets plugged. Throw in VW's quality (or lack there of) plastic and super high underhood heat and things don't last that long.
Here are the parts for an AWM engine.

AEB's are much simpler. AUG and ATW's are similar, but the part number are different. Yours being a 2002 B5.5, you have the AWM engine code (2001.5-2005.5) Here are engine codes for B5 Passats (1998-2001) AEB is from 1998-1999. AUG is 2000. ATW is the fisrt year of the DBW (drive by wire) 2000-2001. The ETKA number for parts can be found online. And dealer prices may vary.
For the TB job, just tripple check everything, spin engine over by hand for at least 720 degrees. Have a friend tripple check everything. Then you start the car.
As for Lifetime Fluids, that is still debateable. The G12 coolant is "lifetime" too, but most dealers will flush the system on an TB job. These cars (especially the 1.8t) need maintenance above and beyond what VW calls for. Never let anything slide, you will pay three times as much later.
