2000 bmw 528i - what should i replace when doing a ccv and vanos overhaul

Yes I.m a new member and recently purchased a 2000 bmw 528i I had over 30 fault codes when I received the car now down to 26. I have been viewing multiple posts and trying to figure out what to do a lot of trial and error. I have multiple codes due to the trans and also have found out that the ccv needs replaced also the vanos needs to be done. The dude I received car from did not do any maintenance on the car let it go.

My question is what should I replace while im changing the ccv and vanos?
Ive already changed both intake bellows drained and refilled train, oil and filter change, due to my abs light on and I believe trans light have rear abs sensors coming and also purchased the Bentley Repair manual vol 1 and 2.

Should I replace cam sensor, timing chain tensioner O2 sensors I need some guidance, so that I can have the right parts when I attempt to do the overhaul. I would appreciate it I have worked on later model 3 series pre 90 so the new stuff has me going in circles. Below is my fault codes from a plug in tester

Thank you,

Engine: P1250, P0360

A/T: P1750, 1751, 1749, 1748, 0727, 0731, 0732, 0733, 0734, 0740, 1770, 0705, 0758, 0763

Thank you just a little direction so I can handle this!!!

I'd start here ...
- Recommended parts kits for overhauling cooling, drive belts, CCV/ICV, VANOS, OFH, PSP (1) & what other tandem parts to buy while you're there (1) & what parts to only buy OEM (1)
Please read the suggested threads, where the best always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
