I came across these type of code on a powershell script

[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Drawing")

System.Windows.Forms.Form

System.Drawing.Size(1069, 809)

System.Windows.Forms.Label

what type of codes are they and where I can learn more about them?

this is some code to draw some application windows from script, eventually dynamically etc.

[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")

Open in new window

is the old way of loading a .NET assembly. With PowerShell 2.0 and above you usually say
Add-Type -Assembly System.Windows.Forms

Open in new window

instead.
After loading an assembly you are able to use the classes defined in that assembly. In this particular case, as Guy stated correctly, it's code to create a Windows dialog with some labels and  buttons and the like, set the size and position etc, in short all the stuff you have to do to build a Windows Form "manually".

It is very similar to what you would have to do in C# or VB (?), so the answer should be "yes".
