2.      For you reference I have attached the WSDL file as well
3.      The WSDL you need to reference is http://ws.aramex.net/shippingapi/ratecalculator/service_1_0.svc

In your project right-click on "References" and choose "Add Service Reference". Paste that URL into the "Address" field and click "Go". Visual Studio should then interrogate the service and generate a proxy class that you can use to talk to the service.

The you need something like the following to call it:
            ServiceReference1.Service_1_0Client client = new ServiceReference1.Service_1_0Client();
            ServiceReference1.RateCalculatorRequest request = new ServiceReference1.RateCalculatorRequest();

            ServiceReference1.ClientInfo clientInfo = new ServiceReference1.ClientInfo();
            ServiceReference1.Transaction transaction = new ServiceReference1.Transaction();
            ServiceReference1.Address originAddress = new ServiceReference1.Address();
            ServiceReference1.Address destinationAddress = new ServiceReference1.Address();
            ServiceReference1.ShipmentDetails shipmentDetails = new ServiceReference1.ShipmentDetails();

            /* Populate all of the objects created above */

            ServiceReference1.Money totalAmount;
            bool hasErrors;

            // send request to service
            client.CalculateRate(
                clientInfo,
                ref transaction,
                originAddress,
                destinationAddress,
                shipmentDetails,
                out hasErrors,
                out totalAmount
            );

            client.Close();

Having played around with your code, i think you are just missing the "NumberOfPieces" value from the shipping details:
shipmentDetails.NumberOfPieces = 1;

If my comment was the solution, or at least assisted in finding a solution then you should really accept that as the answer, rather than your own comment.
