moving tool

I am new to Arcobjects and I am trying to make a tool.
Here is the case: I have a point shapefile (trig_srtm30) and a polygon shapefile (zone_C1toend). At first I place manually the polygon shapefile in a relation with the first point of the point shapefile (FID=0). Then I want to run a tool that have made in model builder. After that, I want to move the polygon shapefile according to the coordinates of the next point (FID=1) and run again my tool. Then continue to the next point and so on. I have written some code about moving the polygons but it doesn't seem to work well.
Can anyone help me?
Next I would like to ask how can I implement the tool I have made in model builder, with the moving tool in arcobjects, so that they can run together?
I am using VStudio 2010 .net framework 3.5, ArcMap 10.0

Here is the code I wrote for the moving tool:

Public Class Tool1

        Dim pDoc As IMxDocument

        GetLayerByName = Nothing

        pDoc = ThisDocument
        pEnumLayer = pDoc.FocusMap.Layers

        pLyr = pEnumLayer.Next
        While Not pLyr Is Nothing
            If pLyr.Name = lyrName Then
                GetLayerByName = pLyr
                Exit Function
            End If
            pLyr = pEnumLayer.Next
        End While

    End Function
    Public Sub SelectMapFeatures()

        pMap = pMxDoc.FocusMap
        pActiveView = pMap

        pFeatureLayer = pMap.Layer(lyr)
        pFeatureSelection = pFeatureLayer 'QI

        'Create the query filter
        pQueryFilter = New QueryFilter
        pQueryFilter.WhereClause = "FID = row"

        'Invalidate only the selection cache

        pActiveView.PartialRefresh(esriViewGeoSelection, Nothing, Nothing)
        'Perform the selection
        pFeatureSelection.SelectFeatures(pQueryFilter, esriSelectionResultNew, False)
        'Flag the new selection
