For example I copy and paste an exe file into linux enviroment and run it. If it founds its dll it goes otherwise no. Why cannot I take iexplorer.exe and its dlls and run it?

Most windows applications need installed to run. IE is one of the
applications. It needs registry entries and some dlls need registered.
And on top of this you can not replace every wine dll with a native
one that will not work.
