I managed to have the spacebar act as the "pause" button of WinAmp by modifying the accelerator tables in the executable with Resource Hacker (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/). For instance, I edited the accelerator with ID 40046 (which was VK_C, corresponding to the current shortcut for the Pause button) in the three accelerator tables containing it ...

misha256 has done a good job of explaining the situation but, you've specifically asked why they decided to make two program files directories. The reason for that is because this design makes distribution of software which targets both systems easier. Since there are two directories for program files an application may install 32bit binaries and 64 bit ...

If you have two sticks of ram, they are both being used. Even if you aren't doing anything strenuous it still goes through both sticks to even out the workload. And ...

You tagged Windows, yes it's possible (at least in the general case of a user on their own computer with admin rights). A lot of game cheat engines (I won't link any as I'm not 100% sure which are safe, but I have used one for research) will let you search the memory of a running process for a given value, or browse through it.
