We have a public folder that emails come to, I want to set it up so that I can view and access that public folder from my inbox alongside my other folders but its permanent place should be in the public folders where other users can access it.

Is there anyway to make kind of alike a "shortcut" to the public folder so that it shows up along my inbox folder or within my inbox folder?

You can add it as a favorite.

Add the Folder as a Favorite, then go to the root of public folders and add the Favorites there to your favorites.  The folder will then show above your inbox as a Favorite.

hmmm, i've done that already. actually, I was writing a VB script to be able to call that folder and since I know how to reference folders in my Inbox within the VB script i thought it would be easiest if I could add the public folder somehow to my inbox and then have the VB script refer to it as a sub folder within my inbox

To my knowledge, there is no way to do that.  

If you need to access stuff in public folders in a script, you can use
NameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(18) '18 = olDefaultFolders.olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders
