Can DirectX be used with Visual Basic 5 (especially
Direct3D), and if so, is there a file like win32api.txt
for DirectX?  (a file that gives all the Visual Basic Declare statements for the functions in DirectX)

The DirectX docs are included in the full package, aren't they ?
U should find docs in several formats : .doc, .hlp, .txt in the SDK/Docs directory once u've unzipped everything.

Ooooopss, sorry , the included docs are for C & C++ devlopment, but look at the proposed VB samples at the address above & the (partial, still to be updated) docs included with the .tlb library for VB5

Since DirectX 7 was louched a file tlb for use on VB is avaiable.
At Reference menu choose DirectX7 support for Visual Basic.
