I have a VB.Net Application that needs to be able to send emails using a Hotmail/Windows Live Account. From what i have researched, I found that I need to use these settings:
     
 Hotmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop3.live.com (logon using Secure Password Authentification - SPA, mail server port: 995)

 Hotmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.live.com (SSL enabled, port 25)

Now how would I be able to use that to send a simple, text only email from vb.net?

You do not say if it's a web application or windows, but I will assume web.
'code to send email

Private Sub SendInquiryByEmail()
        Try
            Dim mm As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("sender"), System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("primeRecipient"))
            If Not System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ccRecipient") Is Nothing Then
                mm.CC.Add(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ccRecipient"))
            End If
            If Not System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ccRecipient") Is Nothing Then
                mm.Bcc.Add(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("bccRecipient"))
            End If
            mm.Subject = "Subject here"
            mm.Body = "Message body here."
            mm.IsBodyHtml = False  'Plain text message
            Dim smtp As New SmtpClient
            smtp.Send(mm)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.errorMsg.Value = ex.ToString()
        End Try
    End Sub

'web.config settings

<system.net>
		<mailSettings>
			<smtp>
				<network
					 host="smtp.live.com"
					 port="25"
					 userName="username"
					 password="password" />
			</smtp>
		</mailSettings>
	</system.net>

<appSettings>
		<add key="primeRecipient" value="prime@recipient.com"/>
		<add key="ccRecipient" value="copyTo@recipient.com"/>
		<add key="bccRecipient" value="blindCopyTo@recipient.com"/>
		<add key="sender" value="me@sender.com"/>
	</appSettings>

Very similar.
Private Sub SendByEmail()
        Try
            Dim mm As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("sender@anywhere.com", "recipient@anywhere.com")
            mm.Subject = "Subject here"
            mm.Body = "Message body here."
            mm.IsBodyHtml = False
            Dim smtp As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("smtp.live.com", 25)
            smtp.Send(mm)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.Write(ex.ToString())
        End Try
    End Sub
