VB means VB6??

You could try a Google search for 'decompilers', but remember that you may not get 100% accurate source code. If the original was VB.NET then Free-Net-decompiler-for-everyone-for-ever.aspx[^] may help.

My 5. For a native inquirer would be useful to explain that the source file is not stored anywhere in the deployed "binary" code, so no one can "get" it.

The fundamental idea is this: compilation increases entropy of the code.

If this is a .Net program, you can use ILSpy[^]. This translates the MSIL back to C#. Reflector[^] is a commercial app to do the same thing but it also supports decompiling to
