1. This can be done with MEX. However, you need to have a c++ compiler installed in your system. Your C++ compiler and MATLAB engine must be of the same bit size (32bit or 64bit). Find more on the function in the link below.
2. To check if MATLAB recognises your C++ compiler, run the following: mex -setup

I assume that C++ 6.0 actually means the code is written in Visual Studio 6 (there is no version 6 of the C++ standard).
As Chibuzo said, you need to create a mex interface to your C++ code. Visual Studio 6 support from matlab was dropped in 2012, so you should be still good with R2010b.
Seriously, though, it's also time to upgrade. Visual Studio 6 has stopped being supported by Microsoft ages ago and it is a terrible, non-standard compliant, C++ compiler. Similarly matlab 2010b is getting a bit long in the tooth.
