You have a blown head gasket sorry to say. The white smoke is water getting into the combustion chamber and the reason the engine vibrates is the chamber that is getting the water is not firing thus causing the shaking.

White smoke out of tailpipe on volkswagen 1.8 turbo?

I have a 2001 1.8 Turbo Passat. I believe the white smoke is due to the engine sludge problem that had a recall on it (I missed the mileage cut off for a new engine). Sludge builds up on the Catalytic Converter. After a certain amount of build up and the temperature of the Cat is at normal temperature, white smoke will come out of tail pipe when accelerating. When it starts, the engine will shake slightly and sound strained. I try to gently continue my acceleration until the sludge is cleared (white smoke stops). Changing the oil frequently helps. Using synthetic oil helps. Shane
