Of course DRG still holds ownership over it, but she gave a copy out, which means that that copy is under someone else's ownership.

Beyond attempt to sort this out, I can't actually comment on it, as I've yet to finish the first one.
No, you can use the game as per the ToS(Terms of Service) you have to agree to when you install it. For hacks like this one, however, there are no ToS and hence no restrictions to editing them, though it is not always ethical to do so. In this case however, it may be Ok, as long as you explicitly state that you have edited a copy of DRG's game and you have no ill will whatsoever.
