Why all of the vb(x)runs?  VB6RUN is all you should need.

In your listings you had many fixmes.  These just point out where
additional functionality needs to be worked on but will work for Office

What SPECIFICALLY happens when you attempt to run the VBA macro?  Does
it fail to fire, Word crashes, or does Linux lock up so that you have to

Can you add what you get from your terminal session when you attempt to
run the macro when you start Word from there, please.
