Is there a way to make a run and stay resident object that will completely control the TCP/IP ports?  All of them?  In other words, how do I create a program in VB.NET to prevent any activity except what I allow on a port I choose?

You are describing a Firewall.  Writing a Firewall requires a tremendous amount of
knowledge of Application, TCP, UDP, and IP protocols and extensive experience in
Networking.  It is not a task for the inexperienced programmer (and only an
inexperienced programmer would attempt to write a Firewall using Visual Basic).

Most modern OS's include a built-in firewall, but if your's does not (or it is insufficient
for your needs) you can purchase or download firewall software from numerous
providers.  You can also get a stand-alone firewall device, or have firewall capabilities
built into your router.
