firstly, what engine is in your van? is it a tdi engine (converted) OR a standard td engine branded as a tdi?

a few photo's would help identify;)

the 2005 era golf / beetle had the 'PD' type tdi engine and this is not an easy conversion into a t4 so I doubt it's what you have in your van.

as to the easiest tdi donors for a t4, the infamous mk3 golf & B4 Passat tdi cars & estates that have the '1Z' & 'AHU' code 1.9tdi engines are almost directly interchangable

As mentioned by the other forum member, most likely yours is a 1.9 Td which can be converted easily to a tdi by swapping an engine from golf mk/4/sharan/alambra/galaxy/seat ibiza/cordoba/toledo,etc. Personally i would look for the AFN fitted on the transverse platforms altough some issues might arise when fitting the turbocharger (VNT over wastegated)- quite easy to sort out with a new tune or ecu... I also reckon that 1.9 tdi is quite a small engine to fit to a van and i might be biased as i already have a tuned 2.5 tdi however there is no replacement for displacement...Also 1.9 gearboxes are quite troublesome so most power upgrades needs to be kept moderate !
