You should have something like this in your wine config:

[Drive C]
"Path" = "~/driveC"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "windows"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

Then you can start wordpad with this. 

wine ~/driveC/Program Files/Accessories/wordpad.exe

You can also add the following to your config in section [wine]:
"Path" = "...;c:\\Program Files\\Accessories"

Then you can start it with:

wine wordpad.exe

I would not do this.

Yes, this should be alright.
