[techtalk] X emulator for X?

I know that the topic sounds wierd, but here's what I really meant:
Some programs will only run in for example 604x480x8bpp. My screen works best
in 1024x768x16bpp (it's a tft-screen), so is there a way to trick programs and
make them run in a window, while believing that they run in full screen in
their preffered resolution/color depth?
I got Grim Fandango running (with very good speed and sound) with wine; but it
only used the top left 640x480 pixels, and left the unused pixels blinking
wildly. I would rather have it in a window, like quake.x11 does.

Any other workarounds/solutions, like having a virtual extra screen that I can
switch to?
