Well, let's say you are asked to build a GUI using SWING. Now what would happen if you did not have any pre-defined menu-bars, buttons, drop downs, text fields etc? Wouldn't every developer have to write it again and again? That is what you mean by reusable.

Java beans are basically data holders. They are populated by the front end or the database and stored or presented on the other end. The link provided by Campbell above shows how you can write your own beans.
I would not refer a drop-down or a text-field as a Java bean though.
The any class can be re-usable provided the current and future implementations have common purpose for the class. Utility classes are the most re-used components.
EJB's are a whole different thing and they cannot be compared to Java beans. There is no point in finding similarities or differences among these two.

Regarding the difference between JavaBeans and EJB: see http://www.coderanch.com/t/307693/EJB-JEE/java/JavaBeans-EJB and the link titled "EJB and JavaBeans" at the bottom of this page.
