No. You can run SOME Windows programs on Wine, but NOT ALL.

Not all would run. Most of them do though. Games are exception. You should check the compatibility list at wine official homepage. That should give you more detailed information on what programs are supported and what are not.

No... it doesn't work with Wine.

You could give Wammu and Gnokii a try (though they don't support everything).
