The "cursor" of the textbox is actually an insertion point. I'm not
aware of any way to change it, and because it's an insertion point, it
would be a little odd to change it to something that couldn't fit in
between two characters in the textbox the way the original vertical line
does.

I think that the OP might want something like is seen in VS.NET, or
Word, where you can have the cursor be an overlay point instead of an
insertion point.

In the VS.NET, and some other environments, this is represented as a
block.

The TextBox class doesn't support this, so the OP would need another
class, or try to subclass the textbox and offer the functionality on his
own.
