This is installing Wine as a program into your system. But does not start it.
Wine's "configuration" - registry and "fake c:" are created first time you run Wine. And they are created (by default) in your user's home directory. That's why running Wine as root (or for that matter any other user) will create the "fake c:" drive somewhere where you can't access it.

Correct. Installing a program into your system requires root privileges.
