Visual Basic Script is probably the closest to VBA.

Is visual basic.net a stand-alone program or do I download it to work with the visual studio?

If you install VB for Visual Studio there are no other steps required, as it is VB .NET that Visual Studio uses. There are backwards-compatible elements in it to allow the use of VB4, 5 and 6 statements, but in many cases there are significant differences in the methods and statements between the .NET objects (controls etc) supplied as part of the overall design package and their VB4-6 predecessors.
