I don't know of a way to do it in VB without a ton of coding.  Getting the text is easy, but formatting it is very time consuming.

The fastest, easiest way it using Drake.

It is a program that does a great job of making a faithful recreation of a PDF in Word or any other RTF word processor.  Well worth the price.

They have a demo version on their site for download.  The demo version only converts every other page.  If you only need one or two documents converted, use Drake to convert the document once, then go back to the PDF and delete the first page and run Drake again.  Then copy and paste the alternating pages.  Works great, albiet a bit more time consuming.
