I don't know about the MK7's but the MK6's were all pretty much plug and play (engine, exhaust and trans excluded) interchangeable between the 2.5L, TDI and GTI. I believe VW carried this over to the MK7's as well.

For example if there is a fuel filter mount on one model I bet the hole to mount it is there on all the others.

The problem is the wiring. VW uses different wiring harnesses for different models and option packages. So for example if you have a car with heated seats the wiring is different for one without heated seats. There is not an empty plug under the seat it's just not there. For the minor stuff you can find kits but a whole engine I would think you'll have to rewire the thing including the ecu.
