If you're willing to spend like $100, the RealmCrafter engine from realmcrafter.com can get you up and running pretty quick. If you wanted to make it by yourself I would attempt to learn C++ with winsock and directX. It wont be pretty or anything though.

Well the thing is the only thing ive really picked up and loved working with was Actionscript 2.0 for Flash 8 pro

and ive found a "smartfox Server" which is used by Club Penquin for their MMO
and ive played a Flash made MMORPG (DOFUS)

but the question is it uses xml sockets

is this a good way of networking communication and such?

If your requirements really are relatively simple you could probably get away with using Visual Basic since you've already got some experience with that; you didn't specify which version of VB you've used, but if it's pre-.NET you could take a look at vbGORE, or if you have been using .NET it would be capable of achieving similar things with more work.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about the Flash platforms you've mentioned, but if you keep your requirements simple as you originally described them there's no reason you couldn't get something working.

Is the term "MMORPG" really so ubiquitous that people really can't explain simpler things directly, rather than making reference to the MMORPG concept?

What's wrong with just saying "an online RPG"?

Just for laughs: Google "single player mmorpg"
