This ESRI web site (link) provides various versions of the identify command (code samples in VB) that you may use as a starting template for your custom tool.

For anyone looking for the same sort of information, but for newer versions, VBA support is being discontinued in versions newer than 10.

See http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/vba_desktop/conceptualhelp/index.html#/what_s_new_at_10_/000100000133000000/

Important Deprecation Notice for VBA users

ESRI will no longer support VBA as a development platform beyond ArcGIS 10. Users who have custom functionality built using VBA are strongly encouraged to rewrite it using a supported development language such as Python, VB.NET, or C# to ensure that it continues to be operational and supported with future releases of ArcGIS. The topic Migrating VBA customizations to ArcGIS 10 provides some guidance.
