Well in a batch file "%1" gets the first argument so your batch file could be something like:

@echo off
if "%1"=="" echo You need to supply an argument & goto :eof
if %1==1 iexplore "http://webpage1" & goto :eof
if %1==2 iexplore "http://webpage2" & goto :eof
echo No number matched & goto :eof

etc.

or using a temporary variable:

@echo off
if "%1"=="" echo You need to supply an argument & goto :eof

 set webpage=
 if %1==1 set webpage=webpage1.url.com
 if %1==2 set webpage=webpage1.url.com

if not "%webpage%"=="" echo No number matched & goto :eof
iexplore "http://%webpage%"

if "%1"=="" echo You need to supply an argument & goto :eof

REM 3 - recieve status
if %1==3 D:\dbs\xy.vbs "http://xy:718/?cmd=xxyy3" & goto :eof

echo No number matched & goto :eof
:eof

And the vbs file xy...

Dim objRequest, URL
Set objRequest = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
URL = Wscript.Arguments.Item(0)
objRequest.open "POST", URL , false
