Hi I got this code

Action a
        = () =>
            {
              //Do something
              }
            };

Is this creating a new thread, and how to do it in VB.net...

No, its not creating a new thread. It's called a lambda expression. Some reading:

Here is a direct translation:
 
Dim a As Action = _
                    Sub()
                        ' Do Something '
                    End Sub

' You can invoke the code inside the Sub() by calling the actions Invoke method. '
a.Invoke()

Open in new window

Direct translation is making lots of sense.
