of course, but you have to instal Wine, you can find it on Softvare Center

Might I add, Wine's application compatibility is not complete yet. What application(s) are you trying to run?

Not every application. Check out the wine wiki "Wine application database"

No, Windows and Linux are not binary-compatible. There may be a few exceptions though, either with virtualization or Wine.
