I'm loosing track of the various iterations of Flash, can you publish your game for Flash 5? Version 5 should certainly run fine**, perhaps 6 should be ok also, published swf's above that I think you'd have a good chance of things breaking (but it probably depends just what fancy feature you're using).

Regarding sound, it's very lightly you are currently using a propriety audio codec on storing your sounds. Edit your swf publishing settings and set the sounds to use something like WAV – Gnash can legally support this without big companies trying to chase them down for royalty/licensing payments...

Sorry, pretty sure no way; and remember even if you did manage to install this dependancy somehow, no one else would have it (i.e. nobody would be able to run your game anyway).
