to all your questions no no no no

its not part of the 3rd paryt software section as it doesnt interact with the game
it doesnt fix the reset device
alt+enter or alt+tabbing isnt being fixed by this
this doesnt help a laptop use a different gpu

if you goto the website you can read that the dgvoodoo drivers are a wrapper for direct x 8/9 api calls to your gpu to display anything on your screen in a modern and more gpu friendly direct x 11/12 api calls

eq is direct x 8
your nvidia geforce 900s are built around direct x 12 based
amd gpus back to the r5/r7/r9 200s are direct x 12 based

These files basically intercept the direct3d calls for d3d 8 and 9 and translate them so dx10 and 11 can handle them instead, thereby allowing newer OS's to handle them much better.

It's not just EQ; I use these for numerous older windows games as well that either plain wouldn't run or would crash often in x64 Windows 10.
