What code do I need to use in order to connect a MySQL database in VB language?

This really depends on what version of VB you will be using. If you use VB.NET, you can connect using MySQL Connector/NET, with documentation located here. If you use VB6, you can connect using Connector/ODBC along with this documentation.

In either case, you can find several articles and tutorials on the subject at my site.
