Visual Basic 6, a old (~1998) and slow programming language!

So would VB 10 work with it or no?

I don't think so.

And also, if you try to decompile SMBX, you'll have a messed code.

I am not sure what you mean, but when you mean VB.NET 2010, then no. VB6 was the last version where the code was compiled to machine code. VB.NET code is compiled in type of semi-bytecode (can be easily decompiled) which requires the .NET environment.

VB10 != VB 6.

What you mean VB 10 is actually Visual Basic.NET (VB.NET for short). It's an entirely new programming language and while its syntax is similar to the older VB6, VB6 code can't be cut and paste into VB.NET code. VB.NET is heavily based around the .NET framework, an amazing (albeit platform limited, Windows only unless you use Mono) and thus has become itself a more powerful language than it ever was. VB.NET is much faster than VB6, but its still not as fast as languages like C# or C++.

Deviating a little from the topic, I STRONGLY recommend you work with/learn VB.NET and skip over VB6 entirely. There is absolutely no reason to be using it nowadays and as others have stated, decompilation of VB6 code will result in very messy and unreadable code that actually won't even compile at all. That and VB6 is extremely outdated and slow, the older Visual Studio is very hard to get running on even Windows XP. Visual Studio Express 2010 is my recommendation to you, however if you're planning to get the full Visual Studio suite and you're running Windows 7+ by all means, go for 2013.

Just so you know, we do not have access to SMBX's source code. The creator, Redigit, is long gone from the community (he went on to develop Terraria) and countless people have tried and failed to decompile the source over the past few years.

Has nobody ever tried contacting him about SMBX through some other means other than the community, i remember a while back he was making an "original" SMBX without the Mario gfx.

But i recon though, if Someone or a group of people but time and effort into it you could create something on par or even better than SMBX

Okay, it might help or might even not help to have the source code of SMBX, but one thing is clear: VB6 is slow and is not good enought for games. So a start from scratch is nessesary anyway....

"hire" implies $$$ and there is no $$$$$$$ in SMBX

Well, GhostHawk is working on VSMBX, which is similar to SMBX and is almost complete.
