Everything is working!
Tested with more versions (chronicles) like Lineage 2 Freya, Lineage 2 High Five (H5), Lineage 2 Interlude, Lineage 2 Gracia Final, Lineage 2 Epilogue.
I'm sure that with these settings all Lineage 2 chronicles will run very smoothly.
IMPORTANT! Components required for a smooth gameplay ;)
Required: corefonts / d3dx9 or above / dotnet20 / msxml4 or msxml6 / vcrun2008 / Tahoma fonts
Install corefonts: sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Change ALT key with SUPER in your Linux OS settings. (*This will allow you to remove buffs from your Buff Bar by using ALT key)
Disable CSMT (Create a new D_WORD Key in Windows Registry from Wine and restart - to avoid High CPU usage).
What does not
CPU (first Core) was 100% without disabling CSMT from Wine - Windows Registry !!
Buffs, dances/songs can't be removed with ALT+Right click -- If you have ALT in your Linux settings. Open your settings and change ALT key with SUPER.
[INFO about testing]
My CPU: Core2Duo 3Ghz
Vide Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5770
OS: Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Linux Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic)
Tested with WINE versions: 4.0.1 stable (tested with all WINE versions from 4.0 stable up to latest)
WINE OS: Windows 7, 8.1, 10 (tested with all Windows versions)
Tested with all WINE versions.
That problem with CPU 100% on one Core or both Cores it was FIXED by adding a D_WORD key and disabling "CSMT" in Wine - Windows Registry (all Wine versions).
Create a D_WORD key like this: csmt D_WORD 0x0
Restart wine using wineboot -r
What was not tested
My video card was an ATI Radeon HD 5770. Keep in mind if you're using NVidia you don't have to worry about it.

If playing with an ATI graphics card, there will be some settings that won't work.
Under certain circumstances, system-freezes with no apparent reason can happen.
