Is it possible to create digital shots [like you would take a pic with a digital camera] from DVD or video? For example, I used my videocam to record my son's game but I would like to capture certain images [shots] to use in my slideshow or I could be watching a movie on DVD or VHS and would like to capture an image, is this possible please? If so, how? Thanks.

Most commercial DVD player programs have a "Frame capture" feature that lets you grab a still from the movie.

With VHS, I think you could capture the video and convert it to MPEG-2 so it can be played in a DVD player like WinDVD or PowerDVD.
