Unfortunately the answer is no.  You cannot combine all the report files into the executable.  In order to install these all together you need to use one of the many installer creators (InstallShield one my favorite), or the VB5 installation comes with a installation source code (written in VB5) you could use.  It isn't perfect but it works.
