for any driver for an operating system for any device you need the specific driver designed for it, written for your OS.
id guarantee there is no tool to convert a windows driver to a linux one. check with the manufacturers site or the linux HCL for your device and whether its compatible, or whether it has a linux driver.

CoD.. BF2..? no clue. check the websites? is there a linux version? if so, download it and it will include instructions on what to do to set it up

Those answer look complicated, here's something easier to understand. You can't install Windows drivers in linux. You can't play Windows games in linux without buying another program to run them and you need a credit card to buy that program.

Why are you moving to linux in the first place?
