I want to develop an application in Visual Studio (VB) where I can add, edit, move graphical objects in some kind of canvas area (e.g. like a very simple object orientation design tool or state chart designer or similar)...
Where do I start? Do I have to design such "canvas" from scratch or is there some kind of component that supports it?
I simply need a kick-start to get me started (perhaps a kind of "Hello world" sample).

Based on my understanding, your issue is more related to the technical aspect than the specific programming language. So I suggest you try WPF, and here is a codeproject for your reference:
Discusses a class which provides automated dragging of elements in a WPF Canvas.
You may start your project here.
And this online tool can help you to translate code from the C# to VB.net: http://www.developerfusion.com/tools/convert/csharp-to-vb/
