This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
yes you can run old Windows programs with Wine
This is a cute link to read about wine
To install wine open a terminal & follow the following:
For installing windows software, you have two options.
The easiest for most is to use a virtual machine. You can do this using VirtualBox, available in the Ubuntu Software Center. Also, you can make it seem seamless by installing guest additions once you have XP up and running in it.
Otherwise you can use wine, and there are a few options with this. In my opinion the easiest way to get that going is by installing PlayOnLinux, also available from the Software Center. It will allow you to create multiple "prefixes" for trying different versions of wine and different tweaks to get it to work.
I cannot give a more detailed answer regarding those programs specifically because I have never installed them. Your best bet would be to check WineHQ to see if there is any information on them, and to google extensively to see if anyone else has tried.
