We use AR REMEDY from BMC as our configuration management tool.  I would like to create my own Reports and  Input/Update forms using MS ACCESS and VBA.  I am trying to find an API that I would be able to use with MS ACCESS and VBA.  

Is is possible to use the BMC.ARSystem.dll  with MS ACCESS and VBA?

People in an Access forum would only know the answer to this question if they happened to use the product in question.  AR Remedy should have a website with a help FAQ that should provide the answer and even code samples if there is an API.

Besides, you may not even need an API, ...you might be able to link to the data via ODBC, ...

You cant just "use" a dll, you must first know what it is designed to do, and what version of windows/Access it is designed to run under...
To run an app you may need several dlls...

So (as Pat states)

Your best bet is to contact them directly

There appears to be an ODBC driver for that:

However, the link in that forum post goes to a login screen, and it would seem you need to be a registered/authorized user of the product to further research that, and I'm neither.

As others have suggested, contact the manufacturer to see what's available. The ODBC driver, if available (and if it would work in Access) would be the simplest way to do this.
