You can code in Visual Basic.NET for free. The compilers are included in the .NET SDK. The express version is a free IDE for it. However, that version doesn't include a debugger, among other features. But anyone can code in VB.NET, since the command line compiler is free.

The .NET framework is a Runtime environment, in provide standard libraries and other miscellaneous things. A SDK is a Software Development Kit. When you are speaking about SDKs, you are usually talking about some kind of product, like the DirectX SDK, which is a set of tools and libraries to build DirectX applications, or say, a XBOX SDK, which is used to build XBox games.
