The noise your hearing is likely coming from the intake side. Pull off the 2 intake boots and replace them, they need to be done whether thats the problem or not. Check the DISA valve (black rectangle box in the intake manifold above the throttle body) and make sure it's snug and doesn't more around where it goes into the intake mani.

As far as your rough idle and idle surging issue, replace the Vanos seals and go from there. It might not be your only problem but like the intake boots, they need to be done either way.
