1. For wordwrap, you use the wrapmode of the cellstyle, e.g for the entire grid use:
Me.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.WrapMode = DataGridViewTriState.True

Open in new window

or you can apply the cellstyle to individual collections of cells, columns, rows etc
Here's a good resource from MSDN on datagridview formating http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/f9x2790s.aspx
2. For RowHeight, simple call set the height by
Dim row As DataGridViewRow = DataGridView1.Rows(0)
row.Height = 15

Open in new window

Your first link is for ASP.NET gridview (question is for winforms datagridview)
Your second link is for RadGrid which is a 3rd party control
