I need some help. (VB RPG Programming)

I have started with a game called The Glory.
It's a RPG game and I need some help :)

1.I have a picturebox with green background and a label inside the
picturebox where I can se how much health I have left.But when I press a
button the health will go down a random number. (- 3 to -30) to if I have
100 in health and press the button and it says -23 then the label should be
77. I have done this but this is the problem. I want the picturebox
backcolor to be more red for every hit and when I'm at under 2 in health it
would be vbRed. I have tried this. picture1.backcolor =
rgb(0,picture1.backcolor - label1.caption,0) but it doesn't work.

2.I want to make my game like this. You see yourself from 4 directions.
Up,Down,Left and Right.
But my qusetion is: When I click somewhere in the screen my charachter will
go there. If I click above him he will turn so I can se his back and if I
click left of him he will turn so I can se him from the left sidem, and so
on. Is there some way I can do this with BitBlt?

3.And when I click on my player or a NPC I will get up a menu.But I want
the background a it darker with it. Like when you choose shutdown Windows.
The background appears cloudy. I want to do like that. If you click on me
you will get a menu like this:

Look at
Read
Check

and the stuff backside the meny should apperar cloudy.
