|A:|| Yes. It is possible. Such DLL created by Visual Prolog should have predicates exported with stdcall calling convention. And VB.NET or C#.NET code should call it in the same manner as invocation of an API function.
You are welcome to download How to Use Visual Prolog DLL from .Net example that creates a Visual Prolog DLL and shows how a program, created by Visual Basic .NET, can call a predicate, exported by this DLL.
