How many miles? NA or Turbo? Main reason I found out at idle is plugs and wires, any wires except stock. I had a idle miss with less than 500 miles, changed both and shake went away. The humming, I know nothing about!!

Im thinking you should check your motor torque arms [motor mounts on the passenger side], upper and lower. Rubber inserts are probably shot.
This is really common. I would buy after market if possible.

You need plugs and wires AND power steering fluid.
