You shouldn't need to apply the patch. It is already inside the file I sent you. Just install the GOG game into a folder and then use an archiving program (like WinRar or 7zip) to get the fileS (i.e. no "file") from the file I sent you a link to, and put those files into the GOG installation directory, rewriting existing.
Running a program in the Windows 98 compatibility mode is NOT the same as running it in Windows 98.
To be frank, running programs in the compatibility mode tends to be useless. It's more or less a cheap gimmick Microsoft made, that confuses non-tech-savvy people into thinking it can do more than it actually can. (much like Windows 10, but that is offtopic)
"then I got the zip file you linked for me and replaced that with all vanilla files" - Wait, once again you are telling us that you have replaced files in the zip file with the vanilla files. That makes no sense. You should do it the other way around, i.e. replace the vanilla (vanilla means non-modded, original files!) files with the files from the zip file (for the mod).
"I'm sorry I have explained as best I could this is my first time putting mods into a file so I don't know how the whole process works." -> "putting mods into a file" -> at this point I am almost sure it is a human-made error. Bzeep, blip blip.
Worst case scenario - send us the folder you are running the game from. And we will find out...
What would happen if you were to rewrite your files with the vanilla version ones?
Or putting everything into a zip file and then trying to run it with Windows' zip implementation? (if that is even possible)
I'm pretty sure it is something quite stupid.
