On a vb.net winform below, A is what I have.
Question: Is it possible to make changes to the header area, as shown on B above?
headerLike:
1. Add a continuous line under header captions.
2. Make header text bold, change its size, etc.

The code populating this listbox is:
      lstCustomers.Items.Add("Cust ID" & ControlChars.Tab & "F. Name" & ControlChars.Tab & _
                               "L. Name" & ControlChars.Tab & "City" & ControlChars.Tab & "State")

        lstCustomers.Items.Add("-------" & ControlChars.Tab & "-------" & ControlChars.Tab & _
                               "-------" & ControlChars.Tab & "-------" & ControlChars.Tab & "-------")

        ' ADD CUSTOMERS TO lstCustomers
        For Each customer In customers
            lstCustomers.Items.Add(customer.CustomerID & ControlChars.Tab & _
                                                      customer.FirstName & ControlChars.Tab & _
                                                      customer.LastName & ControlChars.Tab & _
                                                      customer.State & ControlChars.Tab & _
                                                      customer.City)
        Next

Hi,

At present, you are using ListBox control to show list of records.

You can use ListView Control to get desired result.

As Deepak said, you can get that using a listview instead of a listbox.  You set the columns in the properties (and their sizes) and change the View property of the listview to Details.  
Then when adding the customers you create a list view item whose value will be in the first column, and then for each subsequent column you add a sub item.  Like this...

        Dim customers As New List(Of Customer)
        customers = db.Customers.ToList()
        For Each customer As Customer In customers
            Dim cust As New ListViewItem(customer.CustomerID)
            cust.SubItems.Add(customer.FirstName)
            cust.SubItems.Add(customer.LastName)
            cust.SubItems.Add(customer.State)
            lstCustomers.Items.Add(cust)
        Next
