Problmes/Confusions with WINE!

I want to use WINE.
I have some confusions with it.

Does WINE support only access to Windows apps which are installed on Windows in case if it is Dual boot?
Can I install standalone Windows application directly on Linux if its not Dual boot?

Please explain.

1. No.
2. Yes but not all (see the list on the wine site).

Install WINE and click on your windows application distributive.
