Does it help in any meaning for browsers that are not XP compatible (compiled in new MSVC without compatability mode)?

Nope these are for applications compiled with the VS2017 v141 toolset or less down to VS2015.
If a browser was compiled with VS2019 without the VS2017 v141 toolset then it wouldn't work.
If the browser does not work on XP then you'd need to hexedit files, use wrappers such as OneCoreAPI, revert non the commit that broke XP compatibility or compile the last working commit of that browser.

So VC redist is just cosmetic update.

Ah, OneCoreAPI again, we would need some recent build, I think it's still under development but maybe not fully disclosed (maybe other non-public repo than github) due to licensing issues...

Maybe it's too late, because Flash has been banned, but what about adding a list of compatible flash versions for that browsers?

There are a list of latest supported versions on wikipedia, but keep on mind that
- Although it seems that latest Windows 95 version supported is 7.0.0.14, the ActiveX version is only a OCX (without installer, netscape version is fine). If you want to have a installer, you should get 6.x instead.
- Flash Player versions after 32.0.0.371 contains a timebomb that prevent contents from being played at all. I guess that the last version supported for any OS should be from the 31.x branch (to be safe).
- Although NPAPI was supported from the start, I don't know when PPAPI (Chrome) started to being supported.
- Also, I don't know when did Adobe started to have a standalone player. It seems to be on the 9.x branch, but...
- For some time, there were different installers for Windows x86 and x64 versions, but latest versions seems to have a "universal" installer. Would it be useful to find the latest non-merged Windows version?

Sadly, it seems that the only way to get that flash versions seems to be crawling on archive.org, finding them on old CDs or trying to googling them.
