Some are, some aren't. Ask the vendors of those programs...
Note that sometimes, there are similar programs available for Linux; for
example, while Adobe Photoshop is not available for Linux (AFAIK), there is a
program called "Gimp" which provides similar functions.
There is an MS DOS emulator for Linux. An MS Windows emulator is under
development, but is not expected any time soon.

Not sure what you mean here... how do you mean "transparent"? In general, it
is fairly simple to take a program destined for a different Linux (or even
different Unix) and install it. YMMV depending on what you are trying to do...
