You need another variable to store all the VM's:

foreach ($U_host in $U_hosts) {

$VMM2=get-vm -ComputerName $u_host | Select name,ComputerName
$VMM3=$VMM2.Name
$VMM4=$VMM2.ComputerName
foreach ($NoOfVM in $VMM3 ) {
$VMM4=$VMM2.ComputerName
$TVMName1.Items.add("$NoOfVM")
}
$allVMs  += $VMM2
}

Then you need an event handler to get the selected item and pass that back to get the object from the list:

$TVMName1.add_SelectedIndexChanged($TVMName1_SelectedIndexChanged)
$TVMName1_SelectedIndexChanged=
{
    $vmname = $TVMName1.Text
    $vmhost = $allVMs | ? { $_.Name -eq $vmname }
    $LHostname2.Text = $vmhost.ComputerName
}
