You can skip the docs:

1. Go to "Project->Add Reference...".
2. Choose the "COM" tab
3.  Select or browse to the COM object you want, then click OK.

That's all you need to do (it works for DCOM too).

When you add the reference, Visual Studio will create a Runtime Callable Wrapper (RCW) which will allow you to use the component just as you would any other. There is a bit of overhead involved, however, so it's best to use .NET classes where available of course.

Windows API has enough APIs to manipulate COM objects even in raw C.
VC++ is preferred because of ATL library - Collections, strings, components wizards usually simplify life.
