No. Wine runs (some) windows software by itself. You may use some
Windows DLLs instead of Wine-provided ones for added compatibility
at places.

If you want to actually run a Windows session, you'll need software such
as vmware or freemware (free, but just under development).

This won't help in either case, I believe. See if 4Front's commercial
Linux sound drivers will do the trick for you.
