You can't patch your existing wine installation - wine recompilation is required for that. So if you want to apply some patches you must download wine source, unpack it, copy .patch files to the source dir, apply them with patch -p1 <patchname.patch, and compile wine. although this sounds complicated, it is not - assuming you got all the requirements for wine compilation - i think that on Ubuntu you can get them the same way like on Debian - that is:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get build-dep wine
