Only try the winetricks way. Vitamin explained why - installing DX "normally" may override these core parts and effectively break Wine or at least its DX support.

As for point 3, when you get at that point, please run your game in a terminal and report back on the forums what output you get. Based on the kinds of errors you get it might be fixed in a later version, or there may exist a workaround for it.
