No, it will not. Wine does not provide USB drivers, so apps run in Wine can't see any devices unless they are specifically made to run in Wine (TeamViewer or Sketchup for instance). Even then, the program might not see external devices. Also, Linux Mint is not Ubuntu. In the future, ask on [unix.se].

The two issues are just one: your sda has an MBR partitioning scheme (that's why no EFI partition on it) and your sdc has a GPT partitioning scheme. That's an incompatibility. The install source device (sdc) and the target (to install to) device MUST have the same partitioning scheme in order for GRUB to install correctly. It can be MBR --> MBR, or GPT --> ...

Themes will change icons, window decorations and color schemes, but the interface will look the same. You could try some Ubuntu variants. If you have a fairly good computer, you may choose Kubuntu, which is very similar to Windows 10. If you have a modest PC, go for Xubuntu, Lubuntu or Ubuntu MATE. I personally recommend Xubuntu. It's very easy, ...

There are some software for data recovery. I personally used "UFS Explorer Personal Recovery" a few years ago, and it worked. It is not expensive, and saved me a lot of data.

First thing: Power the computer down! Any attempt to write to the hard disk may overwrite the data you need to recover -- and Ubuntu (as with most operating systems) writes swap data continually, as well as log files, etc. in the root and home partition(s). Others may be able to offer a method to recreate your partitions without loss of data; I don't know ...

OS can handle only maximum 4 primary partitions. Make sure that you have maximum 3 primary partitions already. Otherwise Ubuntu is not giving option to install alone side with windows.
