If everything's too small, you can try changing the the screen resolution in winecfg (on the display tab).

My conclusion is that Wine is not properly loading the help files. You can always file a bug report. 

As far as getting Word to find the help files via the open file dialog, type c:\Program Files in the filename box and hit enter.  You should be able to navigate from there by pointing and clicking.
