You'll need an external, USB sound adapter.

well i am talking the application not the physical hardware .... realtek software has the option of using parking lot or living room etc effects ....

however with realtek u will see environment which will give u the option of parking lot sound effect or a living room etc ...

If you can find a driver to work with the hardware you have - maybe.  More likely you'll need a more advanced sound chip (i.e., hardware).

Depends on the chip and implementation.  The Inspiron 1318 in question wasn't designed to be full featured -- it was designed to be dirt cheap.
