The Web Services FAQ, which is linked in my signature, has a link to an article that describes how to use compression with Axis. It also applies to other SOAP engines implementations based on servlets.

A pure VB6 client is more or less limited by the functionality of the Microsoft SOAP Toolkit Version 3.0.
You should probably look into implementing a .NET assembly that uses more up-to-date WS technology to access the web service. Then expose that .NET assembly as a COM component through a COM Callable Wrapper (CCW) to the VB6 client. See Exposing .NET Framework Components to COM.
