so, i'm guessing that you need to change the cam to modify the engine characteristics, right?

or is it that you can change the rockers to 1.10, 1.25, or 1.40 to get more power?

sorry, kind of spacey, waiting for parts to be all ready:)

Answer to ? 1 is yes. The cam is the brain. Higher ratio rockers only effect one aspect of the cam and that is lift. They have no effect on cam timing, lobe center, or duration. It is an acceptable method of getting a little more out of your cam. The trade off for the benifit is increased valve guide wear. They tend to side load the valve. Things to check for when increasing rocker ratio, coil spring bind, retainer to guide clearance, valve to piston clearance, and confirm your rocker arm geometry(pushrod length). Good resource book is How To Hotrod Your VW.
