you could use

Imports System
Imports System.Resources

Public Class WriteResources
   
    Public Shared Sub Main()
       
        ' Creates a resource writer.
        Dim writer As New ResXResourceWriter("myResources.resx")
       
        ' Adds resources to the resource writer.
        writer.AddResource("String 1", "First String")
       
        writer.AddResource("String 2", "Second String")
       
        writer.AddResource("String 3", "Third String")
       
        ' Writes the resources to the file or stream, and closes it.
        writer.Close()
    End Sub
End Class

to read the resources you should use ResXResourceReader  class.
