When I try to insert a image in a post , I click on the insert image icon, put in the path of the image, (on my server) using vbgallery the images shows up but the one that gets posted is the original file, How can I get the gallery to give the link to the thumbnail instead??

As a quick & dirty method just append "_thumb" to the file name before the extension. For example, if your image was named Grover.jpg then the thumbnail for it would be named Grover_thumb.jpg (remember that non-image files don't get thumbs created for them).
A easier alternative would be something like this hack (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=99011) posted on vb.org that makes it easier to embed gallery images into forum posts.
