You should continue on wine-devel. Although the developers look into
the user list this is definitely a devel topic :)

Even a winelib application will always depend one wine. At least for
the foreseeable future wine can't be used as a lib alone to get a native
Linux app. The app needs a running wineserver.

Don't know about that. But I'd say it doesn't matter how the IDE was
written, it's just a GUI for the command line tools (gcc, ld...) So maybe
you should look to make it work with winegcc (search mailing list or winehq)
