Hi,

1. Which port to use(easy one pl) ?
You can use any port like USB, LPT1, serial etc depending on the availability, speed, no. of loads, distance, etc. For LPT you will need least external hardware.
2. Where to get the driver?
Drivers will be available as libraries.
3. Is the port compatible to be controlled using .NET platform ?
Sure.
