i have create a custom textbox using "Windows Forms Control Library". And i want to use that textbox in wpf. How do I add reference to that dll and use that dll in xaml code?

Just look in the solution explorer and open your project. Right click "References" and select "Add Reference".
Follow the dialogs to select the DLL file, add it and close the dialog.
Your controls should then appear in the toolbox.

We should ban the word "just." There is no "References" anywhere to be found in my solution explorer.

That is ... unlikely.
Are you sure you are looking at the Solution Explorer pane of Visual Studio, and the Project branch?

My Visual Studio dont have Reference Panel too in WPF Projects, only in WinForms Projects

Do you seriously think that 8 years ago I could clearly see your screen?
These days it's under Dependencies, right click to add reference, or go to Project > Add Project Reference.

Thank you, it worked. It is quite strange to call it Project Reference, because it is not a project but a compiled library. Anyway, it worked, thank you!
