The graphical configuration interface just makes changes in the Wine 
registry files. You can edit the registry files by hand, if you want to 
go that route. Make backup copies of them first ;)

To change operating system emulation for a particular application, add 
an entry to ~/.wine/user.reg like:

[Software\\Wine\\AppDefaults\\myst.exe] 1152292768

I am not sure what "sound card emulation" is, but I am guessing it is 
the DirectSound "Driver Emulation"? If so, there should already be an 
entry in your user.reg like:
[Software\\Wine\\DirectSound] 1152294462

You can just edit that.
