Yes, you can install it into Python as you'd normally do (MSI, easy_install, etc...) and then you can use it from Visual Studio.  You will probably need to re-generate the intellisense database to get completions on the modules.  You can do that via Tools->Options->Python Tools->Interpreters.  Just choose 'Show settings for' the version of Python it's installed into and click Generate Completion Database.

I haven't worked with this library so I'm not sure what it's UI support is like.  From their web page I see they support a number of graphic file formats (TIFF, JPEG, etc...) Presumably you could use the library to produce those images and then display them in a WPF or WinForms app if you're using VB and/or IronPython.  I'd approach that by writing the file out to disk and then you can just search for how to display a JPEG or other file.

If they have a more involved UI stack then I'm not quite sure how you'd go about integrating the two together - it'd depend entirely upon what that UI stack was built on (for example Win32, OpenGL, DirectX, WPF, etc...)
