If you know the guys who made this that helps me a lot to feel better about it, and I'd appreciate having these fixes.
You can contact them yourself: https://gmemu.com/discord
Mention @Floogle and @renex to let them know and talk about.

I had some time to waste so I skimmed though the patches. The DirectPlay one is extremely simple so we can safely apply it.

At address 0x187380 of any GM8 exe is the "import DPlayX.dll code and these functions" code.
The patch replaces DPlayX.dll with PlayX.dll which fails silently and disables the "Install DirectPlay" popup

You can see it for yourself with any hex editor and the gg2 exe:
