Default VBA vs Visual Studio for Office

Hi all,
First, my apologies if this is not the right forum..

I just recently got laid off and I'm using some my time to learn how to create macros (for the first time) in Excel and Powerpoint in order to the use the programs more efficiently.

I am SOOOO confused as to what the scoop is with VBA vs. VB net vs Visual Studios? Is there an expert that can provide me with some guidance given that:
--> I am new to programming and only intend to learn code in order to create macros in Excel & Powerpoint

Here are my questions:
1) Which programming language should I invest my time to learn if you were in my situation?
2) Will this programming language be compatible to program macros in older / newer versions of excel / powerpoint?
3) If I create a macro in (for eg.) excel 2007, will it run in excel 2003?

Thanks so much for your help!!!!!

Excel rocks!
