I'm guessing he wants to use DLL injection to hook a console application.  He's probably currently using method 1 of the following article (which relies on USER32) to perform the DLL injection.

He may want to read the entire article for different methods of DLL injection-- or preferably pick up Jeffrey Richter's Programming Applications for Windows.

But based on his other questions, he's probably trying to hook Winsock calls.  In which case, a proxy DLL may end up making the most sense.  There used to be a stub download available, but I can't find it now.  Here's a possible starting point.

As with all DLLs, you load it using a call to:

LoadLibrary() from KERNEL32.DLL.  Then you find addresses for its export functions using GetProcAddress() also from KERNEL32.DLL.  There is no need for USER32.DLL.

BTW, technically speaking you DO NOT "insert" a DLL into any application.  Your application LOADS and then USES a DLL, but at no time is it "inserted".

What does USER32.DLL have to do with "hooking" and the problem at hand?

Maybe if you explained your situation and what you are trying to do rather than trying to be mysterious, better advice could be offered.
