I want to give my games main menu a flash type of theme, Very Dynamic. How would I go about doing this? Would I have to make the main menu in D3D or is it possible to make the menu in flash and then import it into the c++ program?

Well, it should be possible, as your browser is just another (probably c++) application that uses the flash plugin to display videos / whatever. However I would write my own GUI system, as it is a great learning experience. I wrote mine 3 years ago and I plan on rewriting it, because of the stuff I learned from it.

I'm not sure if there are GUIs to use for D3D (besides the one from the SDK), but I've seen some for OpenGl.

It hasn't been updated in a while, but you could try gameswf to embed flash in your program.

Scaleform.com is also great SDK for using flash movies in games (it was used in Crysis too) but it's not free.
