These files are likely audio, as it is the standard format for PSX games, although it may have got changed up a bit when being ported to the PC considering PSounds, a PSX sound extracting tool, can't get anything out of them.
So far what has been discovered is that majority of the files are: raw 16bit pcm, mono, 11025hz, the remaining few being 22050hz which are the sounds for jingles. Various sources on the PSX audio format say that VH is the head(er) and VB is the body file (which contains all the sounds).
It would be nice if we could get information on how PSounds works. Since this post, we fully understand the .VB + .VH file formats, and can import + export sounds with FrogLord. The issue is we don't understand the PSX .VAB file format, but a program called PSounds (linked in the above post) does. Unfortunately, this program is closed source. It's possible maybe someone on Xentax or Zenhax will be able to help us, like with the PC format.
