In dos: use conio.h and/or BGI.
In windows: use the OWL framework.

A vague question result in a vague answer, I'm not telepathic.
Also my talents and knowledge seem to vanish if they are not stimulated with at least 50 points :-)

Aside from the low point value -

you don't even mention if this is meant to be a 32bit dos (using a dos extender) app, or a Windows app.

Link with BGI32.dll.  All the BGI32 drivers use the .dll extension instead of .bgi, .bgx.  The font files are the .fnt files.  The only bbgi functions you can't use are installuserdriver and registerbgidriver.  The only difference is with the detectgraph function which returns more vga types.

If my answer is insufficient, you should give me an F so your question will go back to the queue to be answered by others.
