You can implement DirectX5 the same way you did DirectX3.
I think I saw an OCX wich might help you, which can call all directx functions. Try looking at ActiveX.Com, I don't remember how is it called exactly.
Another thing: If your program uses DirectX, VB just isn't the best choice for it. At least write a dll in VC, and then call it from Vb
