What distro are you using? Some of them include winetricks in their packages, so you may not have to download it. Open a terminal and type winetricks; if it's already installed, a little GUI list of things that can be installed with it should pop up. 

Personally, I've never had any luck with mono. YMMV. As to conflicts, I don't know of any for sure, but as a general rule it's best to start with a clean wineprefix.

You need to find out what version of .NET your app requires. The newer it is, the less likely it is to work.
