1. Yes a *.dcu file is a Delphi Compiled Unit it is like an *.obj file in C,C++ etc...
2. These are automatically created by delphi when you compile a project (Unless you have set Delph (2 or 3) to use *.obj files)
e.g.
select File|New Application
select File|Save Project As...
create a new folder
select the new folder
save all units
select Project|Build All
then look in the new folder there will be a .dcu file for each .pas file there

Hope this helps.
