VOB is the container format in DVD-Video media, which can contain digital video, digital audio, subtitles, DVD menus and navigation contents multiplexed together into a stream form. It is widely used in DVDs. You can play VOB files using MPlayer, VLC Media Player, GOM player, Media Player Classic and more platform-specific players like ALLPlayer. However, VOB is not widely supported by video editing software. Adobe Premiere Elements is no exception. In order for Premiere Elements to import VOB files, the easy workaround is to convert VOB to MPEG-2, a more editing-friendly format for Premiere Elements 16/15/14/13/12/11/10.
To finish the task, you'll need to use a third-party media conversion software. One such software of great quality is EaseFab Video Converter for Mac (Yosemite 10.10 compatible).
