How to force change resolution of a game that is based of 640 x 480 to run in 1024 x 768? For example, Starcraft, Warcraft 2. Edit the MPQs?

Yes, you can't play a 640 x 480 game at 1024 x 768.

Depends on your definition of playing in 1024x768 (for some scaling fits that definition) and why the game is 640x480. For WarCraft II you can use extra resolution to expand the view area using using Wargus, though I don't think that has reverse engineered the AI so that's a rather unauthentic Warcraft II singleplayer experience.

For StarCraft there's StarCraft Resolution Expander. IIRC it has some problems, so not really recommended either.
