You only need a chip to play ORIGINAL IMPORT games. Some backup games require a boot disc(which you can download and burn it for free) to boot up which you can convert to selfboot. Other games will boot up without any swaping.
But you can't just copy original DC games with a CD burner. You have to either download games or rip them using your DC and a DC coders cable or a BBA. Check the DC FAQ for more info.

Don't know about your other question's.

Get the Utopia boot disk. You can get it from the needed tools section at www.dcemulation.com. Good luck.
