Barbell/Dumbbell front raises are for front delts.

Generally speaking it's a good idea to avoid any movement you find uncomfortable or painful. Either change something (grip, stance, form, etc) to aleviate the problem, or substitute another exercise.

Can the DB Raises be done with a barbell?

Maybe with a trap bar, but not with a strait barbell. With a straight barbell you would be doing upright rows, which are similar, but slightly different.

I use a lateral raise with a slightly bent forward stance so the DB's come in front of the groin and bent elbows. It feels to take emphasis off front delts and place more on middle and rear delts. Also in the shoulder there is a flat band ligament the runs over the head of the humerous, side lateral raises with no elbow bend and straight to the sides can cause damage to this ligament due to closing of the space when the delts contract. How do I know? I injured this ligament on my right sholder when I was 16, put me out of Basketball training for 2 months!!!

So i should do side lateral raises with a slight bend in elbows (like 10 degree angle)?
