I am wondering if it is okay to put every day power steering in my Jetta?

No, it takes special fluid. If you do, you will damage the seals and cause expensive repairs.

Where or what is leaking?

If the steering rack is leaking, then the damage is already done, so generic fluid won't make
much of a difference.
