Visual basic Tile Map for game

I am just wondering what is the best way of doing this for smoothest operation.  I will be making a tile map that they can right click on the map and move map up and down in the form.  The form will take up about a 4th of the screen and by clicking on castles on the map other forms pop up to give them choices to do things.  I was wondering what would be the smoothest for the map scrolling around, they will be pretty large maps so I cant draw whole map at once.  Things I have seen are api calls and direct x just wondering if anyone out there knows much about this?  If so i will be asking more questions in direct relation to your answer and will keep feeding you points for each question.
Thanks in advance.

Add and use the Microsoft PictureClip.
Go to Project - Components.

Use ClipX and ClipY / ClipHeight and ClipWidth

use a vertical and horizontal scroll bar too, so the user will freely scroll the picture.
