    Assuming that what you meant to write was that they want to play Windows games on Steam that need a recent Wine version to run on Linux, you don't need to install Wine at all. Proton (Valve's Wine implementation) is built into Steam. Just select the game in the library and, from its Properties, say that you want to use a specific compatibility tool and pick whichever version of Proton you want. The version numbers correspond to the Wine version, and there is other technology involved as well.

    If you want to use a later version of Wine to play games outside of Steam, you still don't need to install a particular version of Wine. Install a version of Wine, so that you have the prerequisites, and install Lutris. You can pick a different version of Wine for each game, and each game runs in its own bottle so they don't conflict.
