1. How to create VBScript message box without the additional name "VBSscript" which appears before message box title?(to make same as VBA message box, which have no additional name before message box title).

for example, that message box show this "VBScript:" name before Title:

Dim Answer
Sub Window_OnLoad()
  Answer = MsgBox ("Message text", 64, "Title")

For the first question think you cant get rid of that "VBScript:" prefix in the tits

As for the second question, you can break the message using vbCrLf constand:

MsgBox "this is a very very" + vbCrLf + "long message, but you can still" + vbCrLf + "split it to multiple lines"

To add line breaks
Answer = Msgbox ("Message text"  & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & "and more text", 64, "Title")

It seems, this variant looks a  little more correct:

Msgbox ("Message text" + (Chr(13) & Chr(10)) +"and more text", 64, "Title")
