Can wine be compiled for windows? I've searched around for any downloads or anything and all I found was an outdated tutorial on how to compile and some people claiming they've used it but nothing else.

Now, I have no idea how to compile, let alone a project like this. I want to know if wine could be used on say, windows xp or vista to run modern windows 7 to 10 apps, And if so, could someone compile them or send a download link for me?

What do you mean?

Sitenote: You really don't want to run XP anymore, it's end-of-life. And vista - I wouldn't even want that.
Sidenote2: You might get d3d11 to work on windows XP though, but not much more.

I don't use it on my main computer but I love the interface and look of xp more than the newer os's. And one core api is an attempt to make newer programs work on xp which so far works on some programs and not so much others. I was just wondering if wine was able to do the same thing.

Uh, if that's your worry - you know you can make Win7 / Win10 look like XP?
