If I upgrade to Windows 7, will these drivers be "over-written"?

Can I use Windows 7 while keeping all my current settings for everything?

Could you explain :

that have been specially configured and hacked.

It's unlikely that your previous Windows XP drivers will work (assuming your current OS is WIndows XP from the tags). Windows 7 will update the drivers. Perhaps after installing you can you the "have disk" method and point to your specially configured drivers, but bad drivers can result in recurring BSOD's.
