Wine for android will only run ARM applications. Notepad++ is for x86 PCs, so that won't work.

That's not quite correct. There are x86 Android devices, and we do distribute x86 apk packages, which theoretically should be able to run Notepad++. It's very likely the OP was trying to run it on an ARM device, which won't work, but since they didn't say exactly what device they were using, we can't really be sure.
