    You can do it in most games, you just have to look around in the config file. I know there's an option in Quake 3, so anything using that engine should have it in the graphics config(ie: I've seen RTCW run on a plasma display, which is what you're probably shooting for. Just browse through your game files with notepad or wordpad(though don't set it to always open with either).

    To get the number of pixels, whip out a calculator and multiply the standard height (ie: 1024x768 or 1600x1200) by 9/16.

    Not sure, I'm positive you can do it when the screen is the right size, but I doubt it's possible to do bars above and below to get a ratio

    wide screen.
    an aspect ratio of film or viewing.
    a standard tv is 4x3.

    movies at a theatre are 16:9

    I play Xbox games in 16:9 but I never tried it on a PC yet...
