Not really. You're not integrating the two, just creating a GUI frontend for nmap. In other words, you create a program where you click lots of ugly buttons, and then based on what selections were made, you open a command line and send all the arguments to nmap, in the correct format. nmap then does its job as normal, and you simply collect all the output from it and redirect it back into your GUI.

Thus, although VB is not exactly the best language out there, it would perform the required function... although the same could be done in C++ fairly easily, resulting in a faster GUI (But, think about it, nmap is in c... thats pretty fast, thats the important bit, your GUI is only letting a user see things in a nice "windows friendly" way, speed is irrelevent.
