well i dont know about your fps problem, but the sound one is easy enough to fix.
the first thing to mess with is the value of _snd_mixahead in your config.cfg file. ive found that a value of 0.21 works perfectly for me, but you can try others. also, if you use the ALSA drivers for your soundcard, from my experience you will never get perfect sound in half-life. for some reason alsa just doesnt play nice with half-life under wine.
