I don't think there are any precompiled DLLs, you have to build from source.

Yes, you only have to include the DLLs you are using.
Utilities/Maintenance/WhatModulesVTK.py is a handy script that is
included with the VTK source that you can run to see what exact
modules you need to link with, based on what you're including in your
source. Run it without arguments to get a help message.

I'm only aware of official support for Qt and MFC. This seems to be a
third party class for wx integration:
