Newbie no more, still need help with Wine

for the love of god i cannot figure out Wine. I have downloaded it, some of the versions don't install right, and one version will actually let me select it through the menu-->applications--> emulators but when I click on it nothing comes up.... Can anyone tell me where to get the best version, how to install it, and how to get micro$oft programs running right on it...... If possible i'd like to be able to run the ones on my windows partition... I have the windows partiton mounted already.... Please help me!!!
