Firefox is good, use the search box, Google finds lots of things for you!

Sometimes, you know, I use Google rather than my own rather excellent
dictionary because unlike my dictionary it has a much more intelligent
feel for what word you might be looking for. My own dictionary throws a
wobbly unless the spelling typed is awfully close and it has had its
morning coffee and it is a sunny day.

I don't know of one program that does both.

For .CHM, the Windows version of XCHM works reasonably well.

If you use Firefox, there's a chm add-on I haven't tried.

All I can suggest for the old winhlp files is to decompile them
and search the .RTF file directly in a word processor.
