Experts, How can I have an additional resource file. I want to store fonts in one file and bitmaps in the other. I would like to be able to access them like normally using "My.Resources.MyBitmap". But instead it would be "My.Resources2.MyFont".

Project...Add New Item. Somewhere in there, depending on your version of Visual Studio, you will find a Resources File. In VS2013 it's in the root of Common Items.

Give it the name you want. Let's name it MyFont for the demonstration. This will create a MyFont.resx file in your project. Simply click on it to add your fonts.

To use it in your code, you use My.Resources.MyFont.<Name of the Font resource>
