Winetricks is a script to install some commonly-needed native dlls and a handful of Windows apps. You can't simply "associate" files with it or use it instead of Wine. (It uses Wine.)

That's Wine's builtin iexplore. It is not real IE. Use winetricks to install IE7 or IE8.

Wine emulates Windows XP SP3 by default, and that setting works for most apps. You can change it to any version of Windows in winecfg, but shouldn't unless it's necessary.
