I was able to create a form in xna using "Add Windows Form", named "Form1" then adding:

Application.Run(new Form1()); 

How can I add graphics to some control, perhaps a picturebox, on Form1 that could potentially show my game as in a level editor?

Microsoft has an official tutorial on this: http://xbox.create.msdn.com/en-US/education/catalog/sample/winforms_series_1

"or maybe you're writing a level editor and want to place Windows user interface controls around the 3D drawing surface"

Basically, you embed your game as a control in a winform.
