The Volkswagen Passat has front, side, and rear air bags. It has child safety locks for the windows and doors. There is also noted an emergency release trunk button.

Unlock the doors, from the outside, just turn the key to unlock direction 2x. This will make all doors unlock-including the fuel door.

I would be hugely surprised if they didn't! You can change the settings for door locks on the OBD (On Board Computer) through the iDrive. You usually have to go over 10mph for it it lock
There is no opener as such. If you check, you will find that when the car doors are unlocked, so is the gas cap door, and vice-versa. When the car doors are locked, so is the gas cap door. They run off the same electrical air pump - vaccum line system.

This happened to my with my Explorer. The key fob was squished and the panic button was being hit when I locked the doors. First try a different key fob. If that works or if you don't have one pull the key fob apart and make sure the contacts aren't touching. Good Luck.
Yes it can be added if you like, it can be very timely and costly. Best place to get this done would be a shop where they do custom installs in everything from doors/systems/seats/engine.
: If by the gas filler switch you mean a way to open up (unlock),the gas cap cover, there is none. You unlock the cover by unlocking all the doors via the driver side doorlock. Cheers.

I have seen these on eBay for real cheap. I own a 90 Passat and have had to do lots to the doors locks but not change the handle. You'll have to start from the inside first, remove the door panel which only has 2-3 screws on each side. If you order one on ebay, or wherever, the unit should include further instructions. Remember that your key will not match doing it this way. If you want the key to match you need to contact a locksmith. Not knowing exactly why you need to do this a locksmith may be your best bet as they will match all the doors to one key or your existing key.
