You need to add a reference to the libraries (dll) and then you can utilize them in the project. You can also copy and paste the DLLs from their SDK folder, and start to use them if you have a project that has the source code but requires the DLL files in order to run (this is a solution if you face the "FileName.dll not found" sort of problem).

During the development process, you will add references to the DLLs (search for Add Reference in Visual Studio). This will include everything available for programming in the IDE and you can build the project. You can include as many DLLs you want, but just note the versions and the assembly information that you provide. Most projects require a specific version of the DLL.

Once you are done, you can then later on publish the project and Visual Studio will package the required DLL files with the project so that your customers can also use it.

To learn more on what DLLs you require, please check the documentation or ask the developer to help you out, this is a generic topic and cannot be covered that much easily without the context being shared.
