You can use ADSI with VB to create GPO's and link them.  When you create a group policy (objectClass groupPolicyContainer) put it in the domains System\Policies container.  To link to an OU, modify the gPLink attribute of the OU to point to the group policy object's DN.  If you go into ADSIEdit you can see what I'm talking about.  

What exactly do you want to do with Exchange?
