Okay, I admit I'm not sure exactly why you'd want to do this, but if you have a VB 6 app that needs migration to .NET, the Interop Forms Toolkit will let you do it in pieces.  With this toolkit, you can add .NET WinForms to your VB6 application.

The Interop Forms Toolkit 1.0 is a free add-in that simplifies the process of displaying .NET WinForms in a Visual Basic 6 application. Instead of upgrading the entire code base, these applications can now be extended one form at a time. The goal is a phased upgrade, with production releases at the end of each iteration containing both Visual Basic 6 and Visual Basic .NET forms running in the same Visual Basic 6 process.

Most importantly, the Toolkit guides you down a migration path that allows you to focus on writing code that adds business value instead of infrastructure and interop code.
