You would need to use an ANE for that. I haven't tried it myself but here are two:

The usb barcode reader does all the work and will insert the decoded barcode number itno the text field. The only thing you have to make sure is that the text field has focus before the user pushes the usb barcode reader. Essentially it works just like a usb keyboard. 

Now generating valid barcodes are a completely different store. there is open source as3 software out there that does that.
