AFAIK, You can't do this with a list box.
You need to use a list view or a data grid

Example :

this.listView1.View = View.Details;
this.listView1.Columns.Add("URL",(this.listView1.Width/2)-10,HorizontalAlignment.Left);
this.listView1.Columns.Add("Description",(this.listView1.Width/2)-10,HorizontalAlignment.Left);
this.listView1.Items.Add(new ListViewItem(new string[]{"www.google.com","The Google search engine"}));
this.listView1.Items.Add(new ListViewItem(new string[]{"www.yahoo.com","The Yahoo search engine"}));
this.listView1.Items.Add(new ListViewItem(new string[]{"www.dogpile.com","The DogPile search engine"}));
this.listView1.Items.Add(new ListViewItem(new string[]{"www.msn.com","The MSN search engine"}));

To Edit :

this.listView1.Items[0].SubItems[0].Text = "New text first column of item 1";

To Delete :

this.listView1.Items.RemoveAt(1);

Removes the item at the index position of 1.

You can get the selected items in the listview directly or by index :

int[] indices  = this.listView1.SelectedIndices;

or

SelectedListViewItemCollection c = this.listView1.SelectedItems;

If the listview only allows single item collection then you can just get the item at 0 in eitehr collection;

int index = this.listView1.SelectedIndices[0];

or

ListViewItem item =  this.listView1.SelectedItems[0];

If multiple selection is allowed and the collection contains more than one item or index then you have to decide what to do.

this.listView1.Items.Remove(this.listView1.SelectedItems[0]); // will remove the currently selected item in the list.

this.listView1.SelectedItems[0].SubItems[0].Text = "new value"; // will set the text of first column for the selected item to "new value"

The listview can have no item selected so both this.listView1.SelectedItems and this.listView1.SelectedIndices can be empty collections and this.listView1.SelectedIndices[0] and  this.listView1.SelectedItems[0] can be null.
If you want to avoid null reference exceptions check for nulls first.
