Object-Oriented Question, and "Methods", and Installable modules.

RE: module -> loadable/intallable module(s)
I have a question relating to Object-Oriented programming. I am versed in "C", but not in Object-Oriented programming. In surfing the web, I have noticed that you can installed modules into "C..." or in "VB" environments and so forth for ease of work. These modules contain many callable routines that the user can call upon instead of using a DLL file. Using these modules, you get away of declaring each DLL routine(s) you use. I was told by a Computer consultant that these "loadable/installable" modules are the way to go, and that they are written in an Object-Oriented language, I suspect/could be written in "C"....
I would like to ask/request some workable examples(hopefully) in "C" that would show me how this is done. Examples meaning: .
1) how is this module is setup, to do the following:
a) construct and syntax and etc.
b) is there an initialization section.
c) how can I use existing "C" routines.
d) I am trying to get away from using DLL(s).
e) I would like to load/install this module into my VB6 environment for ease of
2) what programming environment is needed.
3) de-install this module.
4) and etc...
So with all of this and other things and thing that I do not know that required, I would ask for working examples of a working module with examples of simple examples of routines being called from, say from a VB app. I know I am asking a lot, but how many points do you request to complete this task? I would like to learn so that I could learn from and build my own module. I have plenty of points to work with, thanks in advance.
Are these modules that I speak of, are they OCX's??? If not what?
