So below are you faults listed I don't think it is vanos related. I have two ideas on what could be the issue but first I need some info.

 

Do you live in a cold weather area?

Does it always run rough when cold?

Is there any smoke from the tail pipe when this happens?

How long has it been doing this?

Thanks

My first thought is a clogged cyclonic separator would cause this issue but it is more common in colder weather like weather in the 20s. I would still check to make sure a telltale sign is to remove the oil cap on the valve cover and look for yellow gunk/slime on the cap and just inside the cap. Below is a picture for reference.

 

My next thought is a vacuum leak because of your lean mixture faults (I listed the faults so it is easier for me to read them all at once). I would check the intake boot near the throttle body and idle valve for cracking, I will attach a picture below so you know what to check for.

 

Another Idea is a fault with the fuel system, either a weak fuel pump or a it is bleeding down overnight or a fault with the pressure regulator. You will need a fuel gauge to check this.

 

My last thought could be a MAF but it is really uncommon.
