You've seen NetKit-based TorLab, right?
Outdated, but perhaps similar to what you're talking about doing?

Besides TorLab, there's also a Java-based simulator, which is somewhat 
similar. Sorry, I always forget the name of it.

Why VB? And do you mean VB or VB.NET? At least the latter might work on 
Linux via Mono. Anyway, VB seems rather a strange language choice for 
this community, which seems to prefer Python (Stems) or Java (JTorCtl) 
for this sort of thing.
