Look on the Barcode reader Manufacturer's website (if the have one) for a SDK, Driver or Documentation.

A barcode reader is just an input device. You need a textbox, listbox or some other type of field and when you click the barcoder or scan, the data will be transferred to the active focus field.

If you have the proper drivers for the barcode reader installed on the running system. VB.NET doesn't read anything from the barcode drivers that I'm aware of.

Like soltec said, the barcode reader is just an input device.

Set up the program to have a timer. When the data from the reader is entered, set off the timer for 500ms, when the time is up, it executes the search in a database for the barcode (it'll be in numbers), then you can have different text boxes hold information from the database.
