As far as I understand your questions, you have three options:
1. Pair the PCs and use a virtual serial com port to communicate. In VBNET you have to use the serial port class to communicate. I assume there are plenty of examples out there.
2. Pair the PCs and use Bluetooth socket to communicate directly via a network socket using IP Endpoints.
3. Pair the PCs and use one of the pre-defined Bluetooth profiles like OBEX, ftp, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_profile for more. But I think using SPP would meet your needs best. On the other hand you can create your own service profile on both PCs and then use that to communicate.

There is 32feet net whare you can get libraries and examples in using BT for discovery, pairing etc.


Here is an BT chat example: http://32feet.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/view/99298#74233
