For the CS exam you have to apply for B1/B2 Visitor Visa.

For the residency you have to apply for either H1B or J1 Visa.

H1B visa is better because then you may have the chance to get a green card.

For both H1B and J1 Visas you can bring your spouse with you.

For the interview you also apply for B1/B2 Visa.
B1/B2 Visa is actually one type of visitor Visa they just call it like that.

You can either apply for your spouse at the same time and they give her the Visa or you can apply for her after you come to US.
