Sure, anything is possible given enough time and money. :)

How long it will take and the effort required (lots or little) depends greatly on what you want the finished product to look like and how you want it to perform.  I've migrated a few VB6 projects to VB.NET.  The smaller projects took a few days, the bigger projects took a few months.  To really get the efficency expected from .NET you're most likely going to have to rewrite a good chunk of the code.
