This depends on the system being used as well.  On my Mac, the files
are stored in the user 'space' directory.

However, if you are looking to edit the registry, the regedit program
that is used with Windows also exists for Wine and is used in the same
manner.  It is best NOT to manually edit the .reg files.

Patching and building Wine is described in the FAQ as well as several
Wiki pages.

Lastly, it does help to do a search of the forums before posting.
This subject has been discussed at length.
