Sorry to point out the obvious but if you want it to look like a web site why don't you create a website?

You can host your own website inside your own client application by using the WebBrowser control (so it wouldn't look like you're using IE/Firefox/Chrome etc)

You cant. Unless you use a control ( webbrowser as pointed out already) which can interpret and render HTML.

Drag and drop to form. Call the Navigate method passing in a URL (or file path) to browse.

Also I don't think it would be that difficult to create a windows form that 'looks like' a webpage. Using a panel with the background colour set to white and go from there... you wouldn't be able to use CSS. But then the platform it's running on is completely different client vs server. All depends on what you are ultimately trying to acheive.
