Theoretically, the advance on ANY distributor can be adjusted, providing you can find the correct springs and either different weights or don't mind grinding the weights you have. The problem these days is finding someone with a distributor machine who also knows how to make it go. Pretty commonplace 20 years ago, not so much today.
As for the vac advance, many of the carbs and manifolds for carbs available for VWs don't have any vacuum taps on them. You have to add them yourself, and typically will have to tee them together and add a restrictor so the intake pulses from the very small manifold volumes don't confuse the vac canister. Most people prefer to just disable the vac advance than go through all that.
