I can't get my serial ports to work, but others have.
1: Wine defaults to using /dev/ttyS0 as com1. To override the defaults, create a symbolic link in the dosdevices directory.
e.g., I used ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com2
2: Normally, no. You must change the permissions under linux so that the program's user has access to the port. In my case I added my user to the dialup group.
